Tackling Skills - HWC Scotland v Brazil
The Homeless World Cup is taking place in Edinburgh
The Homeless World Cup kicked off in Edinburgh on 18 July - and you'll be able to catch all the latest action from the tournament right here.

Four graduates from the BBC Tackling Skills project will be reporting on all the games throughout the week-long tournament, which will see 32 countries and over 250 people taking part.

Here is a report from Scotland v Brazil

Scotland 5-3 Brazil - by Sean McCann

Another impressive game for Scotland against Brazil, although Brazil gave the Scottish defence a run for their money.

Scotland took the lead early on but Brazil managed to equalise soon after.

A good Scottish run gave Scotland an opportunity to score, but the Brazilian keeper saved his team from going 2 -1 down.

After the start of the second half, a Brazilian defender was set off for two minutes for a rough tackle, which Scotland managed to capitalise on sending them 4 - 1 up.

After the Brazil team gained their defender back they found a new lease of life, stomping back to 4 - 3 down, but all their heart and all their soul just wasn't enough to defeat the sheer skill of Scotland.
