RWD Issue 148: May 2014 (w/ Jack Wilshere)
Celebrating the spirit of football in a way that RWD never have before, we knew we had to pull out the big guns for this issue. Lucky for you, that’s exactly what we’ve done. Starting with the guy through whom England will play in a style more akin to their hosts than the England we’ve previously known, our cover-star Jack Wilshere has form for sparkling in the light of Brazil, picking up a Man of the Match award in England’s not insignificant 2-1 victory over the tournament favourites at Wembley last year.
Sticking with the England camp, we sat down with Joe Hart just before he got his hands on his second Premier League trophy, to talk about his rise from League Two to England number one and the reason he finds Aleksander Kolorov so amusing, which is something we also touched on with City teammate. Vincent Kompany. We also met-up with Ivory Coast captain Didier Drogba to talk life in Turkey and more.
In what has been a football obsessed month, we were lucky enough to witness the next generation of English talent at Nike’s Winner Stays competition in north, south, east and west London, where teams of four faced-off in a high-tempo winner- stays-on feast of pure adrenalin, technique and will-power.
Outside of football we grabbed buzzing photographer Eddy Leonardo who told us why he’s #ReadyForAnything, we’ve also tipped Shift K3y as About To Blow. We went Behind The Label with some of the most important movers and shakers in music, while 50 Cent, explained his motivation for returning to hip hop. I told you we brought it.
