Why Brasil? I asked.
“I just like Brazilian football.”
I interrupted Ahmed while he was texting, determined not to let him go without a picture. He didn’t need much convincing. Ahmed is from Egypt but he lives in Montreal, again a number of continents meet in a single football shirt. I’ve never seen a guy on the street dressed in a jersey that fits him so well. Ahmed should be modelling for the manufacturer, or for the Brazilian football association. He certainly looks much better in that shirt than Adriano, whose name is on the back of Ahmed’s shirt.
