“In Phoenix, Arizona, there is a soccer club called Team Milan made up of kids—refugees—from all over the world: Burma, Congo, Iraq, Afghanistan. Turns out, Phoenix accepts more refugees than nearly any other American city. And the team’s coaches? They’ve resettled in the United States too, but are undocumented immigrants from Mexico. But they find common ground on the field.” 

FI2W reporter Valeria Fernández was on PRI’s The World last night reporting from Phoenix, Arizona about a soccer team made up of refugee youth from all over the world. Click here to her accompanying photos.
