Our Team Liberia had an incredible victory over Team South Africa today, thrashing their opponents 5-0 to gain their first points of the group stage!
Sent to Rio by Street Child to compete in the Street Child World Cup, Liberia player Daniel Nimleh Bowdior said: “It means a lot to be in Brazil, I never thought that I would ever be here. Many great players have come from Brazil like Neymar and Ronaldo, so I can learn a lot over here.
“I feel so happy right now representing my country and I want to say thank you to Street Child of Liberia for bringing me here, for their support and for changing my life.”
