1. Andriy Shevchenko – “the devil” from the east

They made an attempt not only to present fragments of the biography of Andriy Shevchenko and to give a chronology of the latest events of the sporting life of the football player in one of the strongest clubs in the world - Milan, but also to look through the eyes of the great Ukrainian striker for Italian football and many of his problems.
2. Zinedine Zidane. Golden bald head of Zizou
Author: Jonathan Dew
Description: The book was published in 2004 before the events of World Cup 2006 in Germany, but gives a complete picture of this magnificent football player with a capital letter. I will risk expressing my opinion. Not belittling the merits of the Italian team, the real heroes of the championship were the French and their captain Zinedine Zidane, recognized as the best player of the championship. I do not even want to comment on the uncomprehend act of the Materazzi, which led to the removal of Zidane and deprived the French at the most crucial moment of the best player and the necessary confidence in the victory. Let everything that happened remain on the conscience of the Italian football players, who, without a doubt, carried out the installation at any cost to get the French out of balance. To paraphrase the words of Nikolai Ozerov, one can only say that we do not need such football. But the comments of the President of France Jacques Chirac: "Separately, I want to say about Zinedine Zidane, who, if I'm not mistaken, put on the T-shirt of the national team for the last time." I do not know what happened there and why he was removed from the field. I would like to express my attitude to this man. I think that throughout his career he showed all the best human and sporting qualities that one can imagine: he represented French sports, and so the whole of France. " Perhaps, it is better not to say.

I would like to quote from the conversation of journalist I. Ghorensky with former FIFA president Joao Avelange:
"... undoubtedly it was a phenomenon in football. In the sports world neither before him nor after was there even a remotely similar athlete. He remains the most unique football player, bold improviser, cunning inventor, inventor of unthinkable, but extremely logical moves on Many called him the genius of football.
