My First Football Book

Finally, for the first time, my name and my pieces written in a book. Ya, ‘written’ not ‘write’. Cause I never thought that my essays at About The Game Detik Sports can be a book.

This book made because the desire one of publisher who wanted to create a football book for heading World Cup 2014 Brazil. And, they came to Panditfootball, the place where I learn about football writing.

The first, the publisher wants Pandit write a new journal about World Cup. But Pandit refuse, cause the deadline that given is very short. Pandit then offering their essays about World Cup on About The Game Detik Sports for those book. The publisher, who one of the major publisher in Indonesia, agree with that.

There are many essays of mine included in the book titled ‘Brazillian Football and Their Enemies’. Such as story about Maracanazo, Ademir de Menezes Marques, Uruguay Legends,, Obdulio Varela, or story about England medias with Tom Finney and many more.

This book is first time for Panditfootball and absolutely for me. Hopefully, later on, I can write own football book.
