Soccer used for human trafficking

Foot Solidaire, a French organisation that works to protect young footballers from exploitation, said it is dealing with at least 20 new cases each week and has called on Fifa to act.

In a special TV report shown on Sky Sports News last night, a Fifa-licensed agent in Cameroon was exposed offering to sell 14- and 15-year-olds for £25,000. A Fifa statement said: “Should any evidence be made available of any wrongdoing or abuse of Fifa’s regulations, we would naturally support any investigation.” – Daily Mail
