Soccernomics: Why England Loses; Why Germany, Spain, and France Win; and Why One Day Japan, Iraq, and the United States Will Become Kings of the World's Most Popular Sport by Simon Kuper and Stefan Szymanski

Why doesn't the United States dominate soccer internationally? And how can it?

Which is the best soccer nation on Earth?

Who has the most passionate fans?

What impact does soccer have on suicide rates?

Which sport will dominate the Earth? NFL or the English Premier League?

Why are the people who run soccer clubs so dumb?

These are some of the questions every soccer fanatic has asked. Soccernomics answers them all. Written with an economist's brain and a soccer writer's skill, it applies high-powered analytical tools to everyday soccer topics, looking at data and revealing counterintuitive truths about the world's most loved game. It all adds up to a revolutionary new way of looking at soccer that could change the way the game is played.
