Can anyone recommend any books about football for under-11s?

My son is football mad and has read everything at our library he can get hold of about football. I'd like to buy him some more books, but I don't know what's good. Either fiction or non-fiction.

Rob Childs did several children's fiction books. Can't remember their names at the top of my head.

TJ series by Theo Walcott - my son enjoyed these.

There's a Messi and a Ronaldo biography that are good.
Both written by Michael Part.
Tim Howard has also got a kids. Version of his biography.

Frank Lampard wrote a series of books called something like Frankie's Magic Football. I have never read them!

Danny Scott's new series: Calum's New Boots and Calum's Big Break etc.
They are aimed at 6-8 year olds.
