15 Days in June by Jesse Fink

Book Description

Bleary-eyed and sleep-deprived, we watched. The triumphs and the upsets, the slow build-up and the all-too-quick fall. And yet, even as we packed away our green and gold flags, we knew we'd changed. In 2006 the Australian sporting landscape was transformed. Amongst all the hype and the head-butting, the Socceroos established themselves as a world-class team - proudly strutting their stuff at the biggest sporting event on earth and converting a legion of international fans along the way. '15 Days in June' revisits that incredible journey - from penalty euphoria at Stadium Australia to last-minute Italian agony - and charts the legacy of this phenomenal achievement, both at home and abroad. Just in time for the Socceroos' new campaign, the Asian Cup, '15 Days in June' documents the giant leap that we've taken as a footballing nation, while also delving into the sport's fascinating, murky past. Engrossing, illuminating and entertaining, '15 Days in June' is the perfect book for anyone with even a vague interest in the sport formerly known as "soccer".
