Denmark-based photographerKim Høltermand found the perfect morning to capture the game. The grass is brisk and if there are any defenders on the pitch, they're completely covered by the surrounding fog.

Street Dreaming in Senegal

Whether it's a city park, a dirt lot or a fenced-in turf field, children across the world spend day after day chasing the same dream to be the next Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo. But while the quality of the pitch might change from region to region, and while some footballs might be more tattered than others, the same expression of joy is always apparent as kids momentarily transform into their idols once they step onto their local pitch.

#WhereIsFootball - Soccer City, Johannesburg!

Over the past couple of weeks Africa has transformed into the centre stage of world football, where South Africa hosted the 29th edition of the African Cup of Nations. Like all tournaments, twists and turns unfolded on such a vibrant place where the beautiful game is played: title-holders Zambia crashed out early, Cabo Verde made a name for themselves and Drogba once again failed to take the trophy home for Les Éléphants.
