A video from Palestine (2002), which I went to cover with journalist Takumi Kon, who died at the end of August 2016 at the age of 54.
Kon’s love of football and desire for peace in Palestine is reflected in the book ‘Shooting from a Country Not on the Map – The Struggle of the Palestinian National Football Team- ‘(Iwanami Shoten).
