In 2008 the author accompanies Team Canada to the Homeless World Cup in Melbourne, Australia. This title looks at the poor and dispossessed, from the barrios of Mexico City and the shanties of West Africa to the streets of North America and Europe, and illuminates the renewed meaning that these homeless players find in the beautiful game.
