How did Mussolini manage to use the 1934 World Cup to benefit his fascist regime? How did North Korea, with its surprising team, reveal itself to the world in 1966? Why did the match between Kuwait and France in 1982 lead to the first diplomatic arbitration? What was behind the scenes of the 1998 'peace match' between the US and Iran? How and why did Qatar win the 2022 World Cup? In this second volume, Kévin Veyssière tells 22 new stories in which football, in the particular context of World Cups, has found itself at the heart of international political issues, from the beginnings in 1900 to the Qatari edition of 2022. The author explains how, for one hundred and twenty years, the greatest sporting competition has always been a tool for influence and power games.
