“Everyone calls me Oscar because I play football like a star.” Ibrahim, 5, from Sierra Leone, dreams of becoming an international footballer. He has been nicknamed “Oscar” by his friends who admire his football skills. Thanks to UNICEF Sierra Leone for sharing.

“During my recent trip to Sierra Leone I was spoilt for choice for photographs […] We visited a local school and were made to feel very welcome by the children. They love their football in Africa, it is one of the past times that children really take to, not only here, but all over the world, and none more so than in Sierra Leone […] Being a lover of football myself I often look out for elements of it when I travel. Over the past few years I’ve been lucky enough to travel to many countries around the world and the beautiful game is prevalent in all of them I like to think of it as our gift to the world. It does good in so many ways; a base from which to make friends, team spirit and fair play, honesty and a strive for success with a winning mentality all great attributes required for life.”

Un ballon, du bonheur.
