Pakistan using street football success

The country's street children football team bagged bronze medal and is keen to raise awareness of others like them.

    As we count down the days to the start of Brazil 2014, it's worth remembering the country has already hosted a World Cup a month ago.

    One of the big surprises at the Street Child World Cup was Pakistan, a country not known for its football strength.

    Pakistan managed to bag bronze medal and are now using their success to raise awareness of the plight of the 1.5 million street kids currently living in the country.
