Young men and women who represented Northern Ireland at the 2018 Homeless World Cup in Mexico City yesterday received their prized international caps.

The Homeless World Cup is a football tournament that brought together more than 500 players from over 50 countries who had faced homelessness.

Northern Ireland players scooped two awards at the games - one for Best Female Coach, jointly awarded to Clare Carson and Claire Rea, and Best Female Player, which was presented to Kiera Moss, who was chosen from more than 100 players.

Kiera said: "This project has been a once in a lifetime opportunity and a life changing experience for me.

"Street Soccer has supported us at every stage to ensure that we have the best chances to succeed in life and that we only look forward from here."
