The world of soccer knows Joe Gaetjens as the man who scored the lone goal that defeated England in the first round of 1950 World Cup in Brazil and later met a tragic death in his homeland of Haiti. Not much is known about Joe Gaetjens's life before or after the goal that made him famous. In this book, Joe's eldest son, Lesly, sheds some light on the private life of a man who found joy is the simplest of things, and who had one great passion: soccer. He had it in his blood. The book includes a long and detailed interview with Lyliane Gaetjens, Joe's wife, whose account of Joe's life as a family man has been sought but never before recorded.
