In 1988, FA. was gained FIFA membership. Since then, the Natioal team has played 59 games against other FIFA member countries. Everytime the National team has played, it has been widely reported in the media, and many discussions by the public, regarding expectations/hopes, how they faired, why they faired as they did.
Upto now, no collective work has been done regarding what actually took place over the elapsed decade since 1988. This book is an attempt to rectify this situation. By creating a book of reference, the reader will be able to look up what actually happened, and also through the explanations, why the various events happened as they did.
