Brazil: Street Child World Cup makes young footballers feel like pros

Over 230 children from 19 countries taking part in The Street Child World Cup visited Rio de Janeiro's Maracana stadium, Monday. The Street Child World Cup is an event organised in co-operation with the 'Save the Children' organisation and aims to protect street children across the world and challenge the negative perceptions engendered in the media.

Children arrived at the stadium by coach, just like professional football teams. They went on to explore Maracana stadium, from the locker rooms to the pitch. Many of the participants sang their respective country's national anthem and posed for the press who were in the stadium to chronicle the event.

The Cup kicked off on March 27 will last for ten days, ending Sunday, April 6.
