Football reality show in Argentina

For many aspiring footballers in Argentina hoping to follow in football star Lionel Messi's footsteps, there is a reality television show which could help move them a step closer.

Scouts have been sent all over the world for a show called 'Football Cracks.' In the end, all of the players are competing for a chance to be one of the lucky 17 who will spend six weeks in a state-of-the-art centre.

The BBC's Candace Piette reports from Buenos Aires.
