Title Playing For Uncle Sam: The Brits' Story of the North American Soccer League

This is the British professionals' story of life in the North American Soccer League in the 1970s and early 1980s, when everyone—from star turn to unsung journeyman—had the chance to play alongside Pele, Cruyff, Beckenbauer, and Eusebio in the greatest galaxy of world stars ever assembled in one league. To mark the 20th anniversary of the NASL's final season in 1984, Playing For Uncle Sam recalls the British players and coaches who were part of an organization that changed the face of football with its shoot-outs, new offside rule, and wacky marketing methods. Through interviews with many of the British contingent who accepted the offer of the Yankee dollar, Playing For Uncle Sam recalls one of the most fascinating episodes in football history—the remarkable rise and chaotic collapse of the NASL.
