Colors magazine 

Football issue

Research, writing


For the football issue of Colors magazine, I wrote about a team of newly-arrived refugees in Melilla, Spain; a manager recruiting and trading players in Accra, Ghana and his hopes of selling them to clubs in Europe; and a community obsessed with Brazilian football in Abadan, Iran.
