Rabona Magazine Issue Five (The Derbies Issue) is available now on loremnotipsum.com and featuring PSG and France star Blaise Matuidi. Derbies are the games us football fans live for. There’s nothing quite like the tribalistic battle for local supremacy and, for fans, it doesn’t matter if you’re fighting for a league title or against relegation – you just need to win that derby. In this issue, we explore 5 derbies in depth: River Plate vs Boca Juniors, Borussia Dortmund vs Schalke, Roma vs Lazio, Galatasaray vs Fenerbahce and the lesser known Brazilian derby, Sport vs Santa Cruz. There is also a cover interview with Paris Saint-Germain and France star Blaise Matuidu, and his French team-mates Raphael Varane and Mamadou Sakho, plus we talk exclusively to Liverpool striker Roberto Firmino, England women’s coach Mark Sampson and go behind-the-scenes at Raul’s final game as a professional for New York Cosmos.
Discover Rabona Magazine – Issue Five (The Derbies Issue).
Rabona Magazine is a brand new football magazine published bi-annually. The whole magazine is beautifully designed by Russian studio QUSQUS and printed by the excellent Logical Connections in England. The “rabona” is a method of kicking the football, whereby the kicking leg is wrapped around the back of the standing leg – effectively with one’s leg crossed. The first Rabona was performed by Ricardo Infante in a game between Argentine teams Estudiantes de la Plata and Rosario Central in 1948. Rabona Magazine is a celebration of great football journalism, iconic photography and a slow appreciation of everything that makes the game beautiful. Based in London, England, we are not only lovers of the extravagant cross-legged kick from which we take our name, but also great design and a sharp eye for detail. We aim to bring you the best interviews and most insightful features via our flagship bi-annual magazine, quarterly newspaper and sparkling new website.
