Rich dreams, poor realities

In the context of a continent of poverty, 'The Beautiful Game' brings untold riches to the precious few. Some dream of being among that select group, others merely escape their everyday lives with the simple joy of the game, using handmade balls and second-hand kit on dusty fields. And then many millions of South Africans continued to live in desperate circumstances while millions of dollars were debatably diverted for investment in the infrastructure that hosting the World Cup requires.
