Everyone’s favourite overly-familiar football lifestyle periodical, MUNDIAL returns for its twelfth issue, starring none other than elastico-limbed Brazilian playmaking legend Ronaldinho.

A player who typified the magazine’s ethos—colour, unnecessary showboating, getting too much ale in at precisely the wrong times—and who won more silverware in ten years than most clubs do in a hundred. MUNDIAL Issue 12 looks at the enduring influence of one of the most fun footballers of all time, and along the way we explore the moments that defined him on and off the pitch, and chat with Max Blau, Nike’s Global VP Football Footwear, who might just be one of his biggest fans…

But that, as ever, is not all: we also explore high-ranking dodginess in the women’s game, Colombia’s Narco Derbies of the eighties, and Drogba’s lasting impact on the Ivory Coast; have some fun with an illustrated guide to grime’s fascination with the beautiful game and the greatest saves that never were; and pack in loads of cracking photography of football and fashion, the best sportswriting around, and far, far too many commas.

It’s available from WHSmith stores in The UK, Barnes & Noble in THE US and over 1,000 independent stockists worldwide. Find your nearest stockist here.
