Football in Argentina's slums

Al Jazeera's Rahul Pathak reports from the 'villas miserias' of Buenos Aires as the Copa America is staged in Argentina.

    Legends like Diego Maradona and current hero Carlos Tevez are examples of Argentina stars past and present who have come from the slums of the capital Buenos Aires - the "villas miserias".  

    But as Rahul Pathak reports, despite the hundreds of millions of dollars generated by the Copa America, it's unlikely any of it will find its way to the shanty towns which have proved such a fertile breeding ground for football.
