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 Ukraine

Scotland 1-2 Ukraine (3/4th place play-off) by Aaron Wall

Ukraine edged a tight contest against Scotland 2-1 in the 3rd/4th place playoff.

After a tight first few minutes, Ukraine took the lead after some slick passing which led to a super strike by Danylenko Mykola from close range. It was 1-0 at half-time.

Although both teams had the opportunity to score, they both fail to put the ball in the back of net. Moments later Ukraine doubled there lead with a nice finish into the bottom left hand corner.

Scotland did manage to pull a goal back which raised the roof for the final few minutes with the crowd going ballistic but despite their valiant efforts they were unable to level the match.

Scotland held their position of finishing fourth in the homeless world cup - exactly where they were last year.
