Representing Philly at the Homeless World Cup

 One Step Away - USA 26 January 2019

Ellish Danzy was introduced to the street soccer movement thanks to a chance encounter with Chandrima Chatterjee, the director of Street Soccer Philly, who was at Ellish’s new shelter recruiting players. Since his first practice, Danzy has had perfect attendance at weekly games and practices. He’s also represented his country on the international stage at the 2014 Homeless World Cup in Santiago, Chile. The goalie speaks to Philadelphia street paper One step Away about how taking part in Street Soccer has helped him set new goals for the future and the connection he still has with his teammates who “make my day feel better.” (1304 Words) - By Ethan Cohen
