The Beautiful Game: The Amputee World Cup

TSG’s The Beautiful Game series explores how soccer makes a difference around the globe.

Wish I had found this video yesterday, as many of the participants are veterans of war.

The Amputee World Cup concluded just over a week ago with Uzbekistan defeating Argentina 3-1 in the final match in front of 10,000 fans.

Here’s the only video I could find of a game between England and Haiti.

Much respect:

    Amazing isn’t it? How far this game can spread? Brings a smile to my face to see these players.
