#EqualGame – Italy

Abubacarr still

A trip to Sicily for Shoot the Company to start 2018 with the inspiring story of Abubacarr, a 16 year old from The Gambia who bravely endured a harrowing journey across Africa in search of a better life in Italy. A talented footballer, Abubacarr isĀ helped by a local organisation set up to assist refugees and asylum seekers which is supported by the Italian FA (FIGC). Football is a major part of Abubacarr’s integration into European life and as he’s a big fan of Xabi Alonso, perhaps one day he will follow his idol and play for Bayern Munich, Real Madrid and Liverpool.
