Goalkeepers of aspiring and community rising stars are training on their usual football fields. These fields in the Rio de Janeiro favelas, as the Complexo do Alemão or the Rocinha, are popular amongst youngsters. They are mostly located in areas overlooking the city and therefore provide a wonderful Rio de Janeiro panorama. Usually built by sponsors and subsequently maintained by the community, these fields give hope to the next generation in a city where youths are often forgotten. Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, June-July, 2014.
