The 2018 FIFA World Cup Panini sticker book contains 682 stickers featuring players, stadiums and badges from the 32 nations taking part. However, as the book is released in April and the National Team Squads aren’t announced until May, that often means some footballers aren’t included in the book.
This year, 254 players in total will be at the World Cup but missing from the official sticker album. The aim of the MIFA Project is to focus on those who have been missed out, by illustrating them instead. Designer Dave Will has brought together over 200 artists from across the globe to illustrate the missing players. I was asked to illustrate Amr Warda from the Egyptian Team.
