Tackling Skills - HWC Brazil v Wales
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 Brazil v Wales.

Brazil 2-0 Wales - by James Clarke

If you have had the amazing opportunity to either be a spectator or a participant within this tournament, and to hear the positive support all around the scenic grounds of The Prince's Gardens you've been very lucky.

Being around so many people from 27 different countries with quite similar backgrounds gives you a better understanding of how equal we all are.

It was a good start from both teams who had some excellent chances on goal testing the quick reflexes of the keepers.

An unfortunate mistake split the teams as a Welsh defender tried to clear the ball but took a deflection landing it in the path of a Brazilian to put them ahead.

The pace of the game was always increasing with players closing down the ball quickly.

In the second half it always looked like Wales would get back in the game but they were denied this satisfaction as Brazil smashed in another, taking them to an outstanding victory.
