Reviews

"Having been part of La Roja's inner circle since 2008, Hunter provides superb insight into how, in the words of Casillas, they have 'made something difficult appear normal.' Packed with interviews, above all else it serves as a stark reminder of how tough it'll be for the brilliant but ageing squad next year. ****" "Four Four Two"" "Graham Hunter s fine new book is full of details and memories best gathered by an embedded, Spanish-speaking reporter. What Hunter captures best is the camaraderie among this gifted bunch of players." "Independent"" "Graham Hunter's Spain is a typically boisterous, entertaining account of how the national team rose from the burden of heavy criticism to being the best in the world. Hunter's access - first revealed in his award-winning Barca - is astounding. This is a book that carries the atmosphere and secrets of the Spanish dressing-room to the wider world." "Herald"" "Hunter has rubbed shoulders with stars such as Ronaldinho and Lionel Messi, but has become closest with the Spanish players and he has used that unique access to tell the inside story of how Spain won the World Cup and last two Euros. A fascinating read." "Daily Record"" "Graham Hunter, who has been enthralled with Spanish football and culture since trucking 2,000 miles from Aberdeen to follow the 1982 World Cup in Spain, has followed up his award-winning book on the making of Barca s wonder team with a provocative account of what makes Spain s invincible team tick. Part of it stems from Aragones s charismatic leadership and the collegiate management style of his successor, Vicente del Bosque, but much, too, comes from the country s nurturing of its underage talent." "Irish News""
