Description

Forgotten Nations tells the stories of the international football teams that are unable to break into FIFA's ranks. They play under the auspices of CONIFA - the Confederation of Independent Football Associations - created to help express the cultural identities of football's 'stateless peoples', fighting for recognition on the biggest stage of all.
