Inside the world of soccer with George Vecsey


Guest: George Vecsey

Veteran sportswriter GEORGE VECSEY’s new book Eight World Cups: My Journey Through the Beauty and Dark Side of Soccer, is part travelogue, part play-by-play and part history of the game. He writes about the great national leagues, the politics, the historic clubs, the devoted fans and the sport’s superstars from his perspective covering soccer for The New York Times where he was a columnist from 1982 through 2011. So, while soccer is on our minds, we’ve invited George Vecsey to Radio Times to take us inside and behind the scenes of World Cup competition.
