Jabulani ball on trial in Soweto

Al Jazeera's Paul Rhys finds out what township players think of maligned World Cup ball.



    Al Jazeera's Paul Rhys goes to the township of Soweto to give Sunday league players the chance to test the World Cup's much-maligned "Jabulani" ball for themselves.

    Top players and coaches have complained that the official match ball is too unpredictable - with Spain goalkeeper Iker Casillas describing it as "a beachball".

    A string of errors have been blamed on the expensive Adidas product. But will Soweto's footballers find it easier to handle?
