Rabona Magazine Issue Three is out now (the USA Issue). It was a summer to remember for American soccer as fans turned out in record numbers to support their World Cup journey. In Rabona Magazine Issue 3, there are 96 pages of iconic photography and insightful journalism to enjoy, including our cover interview with the face of US soccer, Tim Howard.
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.
