HWC Rio 2010

The 2010 Homeless World Cup in Brazil was a great adventure, especially for the six young men who represented their country on a world stage. We finished 39th overall which was an improvement on our position in Milan 2009 (45th) and Melbourne 2008 (46th).

Cambodia take on Ireland in the group stages.

At times we struggled on the pitch against teams who come from strong footballing nations but the players gave their all and had two notable victories over Canada. Off the pitch the players were great ambassadors for Cambodia. All the opposite teams and fans took them to their hearts and wanted their pictures taken with them.
