Our next football trade was with a shopkeeper called Manmade, close to Nkata Bay, Malawi, on our way to screen the Portugal-Ghana game. The rubber trees in this area provide an abundance of crude rubber, a superb material for football-crafting. In exchange for a One World football, we received an expertly made rubber ball, very bouncy and fun to play with. The ball was built with a bladder inside, and then hundreds of long thin strips of rubber latticed on top. Manmade also showed us the seeds from which the rubber trees grow, and introduced us to his son outside his roadside shop.
