It's not just the World Cup in Brazil which is bringing together footballers from across the globe.
'Futbol Mundial' can be found in all weathers closer to home, at Roath recreation ground in Cardiff.
Photographer Dan Green has been playing there himself for 25 years and the midfielder decided to tap in to the wide range of nationalities playing there for a project.
Result? An exhibition at the Made gallery in Lochaber Street, Roath, Cardiff throughout the World Cup.
"I live around the corner and this has been going on for maybe 30 years," said Dan.
"People come from all parts of the city to play. It's a chance for to meet people from your own background but also lots of others. There are no ethnic, religious, political barriers - everyone just gets together and plays."
The exhibition includes short stories alongside the portraits.
The Roath Rec World XI exhibition is open 1000-1700 BST Monday to Saturday; 1100- 1600 Sundays until 13 July. Kickabouts take place in Roath at 1400 on Saturdays and Sundays.
