    Book ↠ Golazo ʵ Andreas campomar GolazoThe history of football or soccer – this review will use the term “football” in South American is not only rich with exciting players and teams on the pitch but also colorful on how much it is intertwined with the politics of the continent’s nations This book by Andreas Campomar is a complete detailed history of the “beautiful game” in that area of the worldWhile the title does state that the book is about football in Latin American once the ancient history about the game with the Aztecs is told football and politics in three South American nations make up the bulk of the material Brazil Argentina and Uruguay While this would not be completely surprising as these three nations have won nine World Cup championships among them the book does lack material on most of the other nations with a notable exception of Chi

    Book ↠ Golazo ʵ Andreas campomar GolazoA really deep survey of Soccer in Latin America although the majority of the book is spent chronicling the history of Argentina Uruguay and Brazil Mr Campomar does a good job in waving the histories of most of the nations he talks about with soccer or futbol and helps explain the changing tide of all of the countries within their economic social and political sphere The modern chapters get really interesting as we see the game becoming interconnected but the early chapters really lay the foundation for the last 5 Good read and the chapters while long tend to flow really smoothly Highly recommend

    Book ↠ Golazo ʵ Andreas campomar GolazoA little bit dense and slow to read focused mainly on South America and the football triumvirate of Brazil Uruguay and Argentina Still it’s a great read to understand how politics and football relate everywhere in the region how have they evolved and why are they so important As a fan of the game myself I was extremely surprised at the lack of fair play early on As a Mexican it was easy to contrast football in my country with the game in South American I can say I

    Book ↠ Golazo ʵ Andreas campomar GolazoGood but not great Much of the book is a regurgitation of the results of major tournaments This is useful for older tournaments with which I was not familiar like Uruguay's wins at the '24 and '28 Olympics but it's less useful for the recent tournaments with which I am already familiar For instance I didn't get much out of the description of the Maracanazo but that's because I had read articles about it before Also Campomar's choice of emphasis is somet
