It takes the Immortals concept made famous elsewhere in the sporting world and applies it to soccer.

About the author

Lucas Radbourne

Lucas Radbourne thinks he could have gone pro if it wasn't for his bad knee. Instead, he settled for being an editor for FourFourTwo Australia, FTBL, The Women's Game and Beat Magazine. He's also a director of a non-profit foundation and has been published in The Guardian, News Corp and magazines across Australia and the United Kingdom. He's worked in Moscow and Berlin - among 26 other countries - authored his first book and trained a border collie that sits before he crosses the road. That was Lucas's first 25 years. Now he's planning to spend most of his money on booze, women and fast cars - the rest, as he once read, you just squander.
