Germany, France and Italy, undoubted superpowers of the beautiful game, but nestled between them on the map, surrounded by mountains and sitting at 15 in the FIFA rankings, is Switzerland. For its fifth issue, Glory Magazine turns its eye on this true home of football (well, it is home to both UEFA and FIFA). Inside there's a profile on FC Basel and a chat with Marco Streller, their all-time top goalscorer, a look at the origins of some of the countries enigmatically names clubs (stand up Young Boys) and a sit down with the man who revolutionised the Swiss game, Roy 'Warhammer' Hodgson.
Elsewhere we meet the architects making the most beautiful stadia in the world, knock on FIFA's door and visit the villager of Gspon, to play football at heights that will make your nose bleed.
Vowing to put the 'beautiful' back into the beautiful game, Glory brings us football with finesse. Travelling the world to report back on the game played elsewhere - this is part travelogue, all footie mag.
The recounting of the 1954 World Cup, hosted by the Swiss. A tournament of record breaking football feats.
