Scotland reach the Homeless World Cup Final against Mexico


With the Scottish game getting bad press at the moment due to our professional clubs getting knocked out of Europe early, it is an uplifting feeling to hear that a Scotland national side has reached a Cup Final. In fact Scotland have reached the Homeless World Cup Final, where they will face Mexico.

Scotland are no strangers to the Homeless World Cup Final as they were victorious in 2007, while Mexico are in the final for the first time ever.

Mexico demolished a much fancied Brazilian side 5-1, and the Mexicans could make it a double celebration tomorrow if they win the Men’s Final as the Women’s side will take on Kenya in the Women’s Homeless World Cup Final.

Scotland faced a tough test in the semi final against Kenya in front of a large crowd on the Champs de Mars and secured a narrow but entertaining victory in a game which could have been won by either side.

The final will take place tomorrow afternoon at 4.20pm at the Stade de Liberte, meanwhile the Scotland Ladies side will take on Malawi in the 5th & 6th place play-off tomorrow morning.

Hopefully the Scotland men side can bring back the trophy to give our fans something to cheer about amongst all the doom and gloom, and the women can secure fifth place.
