Russian gas giant Gazprom has chosen 32 children from Africa, Asia, Europe and South America to work at the Children’s press center during the UEFA Champions League Final in Milan. 

The 12-14 year old children will cover the events of the Fourth International Children’s Football for Friendship Forum, which will take place in Milan on May 26-29, 2016. 

The young team will work alongside professional journalists collecting information, making reports, and writing news for the Football for Friendship official social media accounts. 

Each of the selected teens is the winner of their respective national contest, and all of the children have achieved great success in different fields.

Joaquín Flammini from Argentina is not only a fan of football and an efficient opinion shape but also a promising actor who has participated in the most popular TV series in the country.

“I love being a journalist because I have a chance to share what I find with the world. I always want to travel everywhere, meet different people and especially, I want to expand my knowledge. Football for Friendship is a great program for children. It will bring children from different countries together so they can learn more about other cultures," said 14-year-old Thu Vo Ngoc Anh, a young amateur journalist from Vietnam.

The Football for Friendship program has been held since 2013 and is aimed at fostering tolerance and respect towards different cultures and ethnicities among children from across the world.
