Try to select traditional South African foods suitable for your player. Food is your body’s fuel and the better the quality of fuel you put in, the better your performance. You need to make sure there is a balance between the major food groups: fats; proteins; carbohydrates; vitamins and minerals; and fibre.

player 1 alimamy
Player 1 - Alimamy
    • Name: Alimamy
    • Position: Striker
    • Country: Sierra Leone
  • My name is Alimamy Kamara and I’m 13 years old. I was a child soldier fighting with the RUF rebels during Sierra Leone’s civil war – I was abducted to fight when I was just 11. I was afraid for my life. I finally escaped by hiding in the back of a truck. My life is different now since coming to the Makeni Project. The project is for children like me who were once child soldiers. I love playing football – it’s so much fun. It’s a great healer because it brings together children who once fought against each other. It unites us in friendship and team spirit. My dream is to have perfect peace. Never let this war repeat itself.
player 2 guelor
Player 2- Guelor
    • Name: Guelor
    • Position: Left-back
    • Country: Democratic Republic of Congo
  • My name is Guelor Tama. I have lived on the streets of Kinshasa for most of my life. I left home because I was being mistreated. I slept on the streets and had to beg to survive. Now, thanks to Humanité Nouvelle, my life is changed. This project helps me to look after myself and is helping me to become somebody. I love playing football and I want to be a famous footballer. I’m studying to be an electrician because if I can’t become a famous footballer I’d like to be an electrician. Football is just the best sport for us and the Congolese are really good at it. I like it because I feel relaxed when I’m playing. I play every day with my friends. My hero is Ronaldo.
player 3 erykah
Player 3 - Erykah
    • Name: Erykah
    • Position: Midfielder
    • Country: Eritrea
  • My name is Erykah. I play football for Praxis Panthers women’s team in London. When I arrived in this country two years ago from Eritrea, I was very lonely. I was a stranger and didn’t feel welcome. Since I heard about the football team they have become like my new family. We all come from different backgrounds and different countries around the world. We are different but we are all equal and we try to understand what each other has been through.

In pairs, have your group act out a post-match interview – one takes the role of one of the players above, and one the interviewer. Make sure they take time to think up the questions and to get into role. Alternatively, they could take on the role of a football commentator, describing each player in turn.

  • Have your groups compare the different experiences of the players. In what ways has football helped them to overcome their difficulties? What benefits can you get from playing team sports?

Can you find the sum of the total distance travelled during the qualifying stages and the distance that will be travelled during the group stages?
