Ghana's football fans see hope from slums

Young footballers dream of playing for national team. However, for now, they sift through electrical waste to survive.

    Ghana are out of the 2014 World Cup following a loss at the hands of Portugal.

    However, the team's show on the field in Brazil won many hearts, including those back home.

    Some of their most devoted fans are to be found in the slums.
