Homeless men offered footballing chance
Two homeless Londoners were spotted by talent scouts as England made it to the final of the Homeless World Cup.
Mo Stevenson and Greg Joseph have been invited to train with different London clubs once they return from the event in Austria.
England were beaten 2-1 by an Austrian team made up of refugees.
Will Balakrishman, manager of the English team at the tournament, confirmed that Stevenson, 23, and Joseph, 21, had a chance to get back into the game.
Neither wanted to reveal which clubs they were going to train with, but Joseph said: "It would be a dream come true if I were chosen at the end of it for a professional team."
Both have strong connections to London football. Stevenson used to play for Fulham between the age of 14 and 17 but "strayed away with the wrong people" and ended up on the streets.
Joseph played for Leyton Orient between the ages of 16 and 18, but gave up for two years when he ended up on the streets.
The pair were brought back to the pitch through the Street League organisation.
Stevenson said: "When I wasn't playing football I wasn't doing anything. Football has given me a lot more motivation. When you get up for training it's like getting up for a job."
Joseph added: "Football is the only real thing I am a talented at and it means everything to me."
Hang in there Homey...You never can tell when somebody might find you...
