From a refugee camp to playing against Messi: How brothers Bernard and Imani Kamungo did it together

Messi struck first. Compatriot Facundo Quignon leveled for Dallas. Then, it was Bernard’s moment.

Jesús Ferreira found Bernard at the edge of the 18-yard box. As calmly as if he was still on the turf field at Abilene High School, or the dusty streets of the Nyarugusu refugee camp, Bernard side-stepped his first defender before evading the sliding tackle of another. A slight touch with his right foot pushed the ball past the on-rushing goalkeeper before Bernard finished into the empty net.

“The dream continues,” said the commentator.
