NR special from South Africa

It's a big year for the country of South Africa, as one of the biggest sporting events in the world kicks off there in June - the football World Cup.

Of the home nations, only England have qualified to play in the tournament.

Newsround has sent Ore to South Africa to find out more about what England supporters and players can expect when they're there.

But Ore isn't just there to think about football - he's also been looking at other aspects of South African life and culture.
