'World Cup' games for refugee women

In Brazil, a World Cup tournament organised for refugee men has inspired the women in their lives to have a go at the sport.

A World Cup tournament for refugees living in Sao Paulo has had an unexpected outcome.

The event, organised by a Brazilian NGO, was initially aimed at men. However, a number of women from Syria and other countries stepped in and asked for a match of their own.

For many, it was the first time they had ever played football.
