Internationally, many football players give their first touches in a ball in a field of dirt bare. Players like Didier Drogba and Samuel Eto'o are good examples. In this story I try to show the pleasure that African children have in playing football even barefoot or in sandals, they do a lot of dust when playing among them. The photos were taken in the village of Dulombi and Galomaro in Guinea Bissau. There are two villages that belonged to the 60 locations where the Portuguese military were hosted during colonial war. Today the barracks and fields are abandoned and serve as a "football field" for young football fans of those villages.
