Play like a professional

2nd June 2006 at 01:00
Boys and girls share the camera with international superstars in Play Football. The main photos in this admirably clear 64-page book are always of young players. They are shown practising skills in step-by-step sequences, which are then further illustrated by action shots of better-known exemplars. Aspiring enthusiasts can see how they might head like Maldini or turn like Zidane. Later pages show how individual actions can be blended into larger strategic patterns of defence and attack. Play Football costs pound;6.99 from DK.
