Tackling Skills - HWC England v South Africa
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 England v South Africa

England 5-1 South Africa - by Sean McCann

England started as they meant to go on with Romeo's first shot narrowly missing the crossbar.

South Africa seemed some what sluggish at the start of the match, then after Fernand Bass scored England's first goal, South Africa seemed to pick up the pace.

Gary Whiteside went on to score a hat-trick in the match.

After a penalty was given away by birthday boy Terry Barlow 21, South Africa managed to claw one back.

On the whole both teams played a good match but the South Africans were out witted by England's tactics.

After the final whistle and a controversial decision the score was England 5-1 South Africa, instead of 6-1 to England.

This was due to Craig Phillips' goal being disallowed after the match by the officials, because he was in the goalkeepers area.

The crowd didn't take to kindly to this.
