From the Maracanazo to the Game of the Century, all the best moments are here. Every book in The Road to the World s Most Popular Cup series provides an in-depth look at the biggest event in your favorite sport and what it takes for the athletes and their teams to get there.

Educational Videos are offered in chapters through the use of a QR code, that, when scanned, takes the student to an online video showing a moment in soccer history via a video. This gives the readers additional content to supplement the text. Text-Dependent Questions are placed at the end of each chapter. They challenge the reader s comprehension of the chapter they have just read, while sending the reader back to the text for more careful attention to the evidence presented there. Research Projects are provided at the end of each chapter as well and provide readers with suggestions for projects that encourage deeper research and analysis. And a Series Glossary of Key Terms is included in the back matter containing terminology used throughout the series.
