Feel Good Story: Darfur United and the Viva World Cup

Two of my passions (soccer and Africa) came together when I got to report about the Darfur United team of refugees about to compete in the stateless World Cup, which I had actually never heard of. How cool is that?

Here's my report for Voice of America.

There's a fascinating blog where you can follow the team as it goes through the competition in Kurdish areas of northern Iraq, June 4-9. Apparently, you may even be able to watch the matches live.
