A Welsh former Sky Sports broadcaster has been recommended a copy of his own book by Amazon.

The online retailer suggested to Bryn Law, who used to be a touchline reporter for the sports channel, that he might be interested in buying Zombie Nation Awakes: Welsh Football’s Odyssey to Euro 2016: The Diary of a Reporter.

The book tells the “inside story” of Wales’ journey to Euro 2016 – the first finals of a major tournament it had qualified for since 1958.

The message from Amazon states: “Based on your recent activity, we thought you might be interested in this.”

Law replied: “Dear @AmazonUK – thanks but I’ve already got a copy.”

‘Outstanding performances’ 

In the description of the book on Amazon, it says: “This is the book that many Welsh football fans thought they’d never get to read; a tale of outstanding performances at home and away, qualification success and a FIFA Top Ten ranking, and the best thing is…it’s all true!

“Zombie Nation Awakes tells the inside story of Wales’ amazing journey to qualifying for the finals of Euro 2016 in France; the first time Wales has played in finals of a major tournament since 1958.

“Packed with passion, tinged with sadness, and written with great humour, Bryn Law’s diary of the campaign perfectly describes the emotions of following the Welsh national football team; when years of despair vanished in a wave of glorious euphoria to the sounds of Zombie Nation.

“It will bring a tear to your eye and put a massive grin on your face. Game by game, and after an almost disastrous start in Andorra, Bryn’s diary reflects the growing but guarded optimism of the players, the supporters and the Welsh nation, as he reported on the campaign for Sky Sports.

“His passion for Welsh football shines through on every page of Zombie Nation Awakes and fans of Welsh football will love it.”
