As excitement builds over the football World Cup, younger athletes are also getting into the action. Street children from around the world travelled to Brazil, to participate in their own international football tournament.
The World Cup in Brazil brought together teams of street children from all over the world – the Philippines, Burundi, Nicaragua, the United States and the eventual winners, Tanzania. They ate together and chatted, through translators, about their different cultures and their shared problems.
