About the Homeless World Cup that was first established in 2001 to give homeless people the opportunity to better their lives through sports. Five years later, 20,000 homeless people had competed on street soccer teams, with 500 players selected to represent 48 countries in the fourth annual Homeless World Cup in Cape Town, South Africa, in the summer of 2006. Here, seven players are profiled who become heroes on the soccer pitch and find a way out of their situations. [D-Man2010]
