The Homeless World Cup Soccer games in Milan, Italy begin on Sunday. And this year, the U.S. team's got a female player, for the first time. The lucky right defender comes from the Charlotte team and she's only been playing soccer for a year. WFAE's Simone Orendain met Ebony Wright at the Urban Ministry Center days before she left for Italy and has this report.
