"Soccer is the world's most popular sport. Some pro players are international celebrities. This book is a frank and fascinating look at what it takes to play pro soccer, from starting young to playing in community leagues, joining traveling teams, college play, and being fit and agile on the field. Chapters cover the history of the game, a day in the life of a pro hockey player, women in soccer (it's not just a men's sport), and playing overseas. Each chapter features attention-grabbing photos and examples from the lives of well-known athletes. A Fun Facts section includes more facts, plus anecdotes and lore unique to the beautiful game"--Provided by the publisher.
