Angola's young footballers

Al Jazeera's Andy Richardson investigates the plight of Angola's young footballers.

    The Angolan government has invested hundreds of millions of dollars to bring the Africa Cup of Nations to their country for the first time.

    But while four new stadia and an improved infrastructure will be left behind, many in Angola feel the money should have been spent elsewhere.

    The vast majority of young would-be footballers in Angola have little or no access to proper training facilities and often struggle just to get a decent meal every day.
