Why England Lose shortlisted for Sports Book Awards
February 02, 2010
Why England Lose, co-written by Simon Kuper and Stefan Szymanski, has been shortlisted in this year's British Sport Book Awards in the Best Football Book category.
Drawing on geography, economics, statistics, and psychology, Why England Lose offers a new way of looking at football, beyond the clichés of ‘The Magic of the FA Cup', ‘England Slump to Shock Defeat, or ‘Newcastle Land World Cup Star'.
The award will be judged by the Football Writers Association and presented following a dinner at the new Park Plaza Westminster Hotel on Thursday 11th March 2010.
