FourFourTwo - - EDITOR'S LETTER -

Ulisses Neto: FFT’S videog­ra­pher found Ron­aldo in the mood to bare his soul. “Hear­ing O Fenomeno’s story of re­demp­tion – from 1998 World Cup heart­break and knee in­jury heartache to scor­ing the goals that won Brazil the 2002 World Cup – was in­spi­ra­tional.” Fer­nando Munoz: The Panini sticker afi­cionado let us loose on his World Cup archive. “I started in 1986, some­how get­ting Diego Maradona in a pack, but Italia 90 and our Colom­bian su­per­star Car­los Valder­rama was the big one. I can’t wait to start on the 2018 edi­tion!” Will Cor­nelius: The lens­man snapped Ar­se­nal’s Ar­me­nian ace in north Lon­don. “Four of us were try­ing to fig­ure out how to spell Mkhi­taryan. He walks in and says, ‘Most peo­ple just call me Micki’. He was an ab­so­lute gent and the most in­tel­li­gent baller I have ever shot.”
