The annual Homeless World Cup has been taking place in Glasgow this year and Ireland are among the participating teams.

Ireland were seeded 7th going into Glasgow 2016.

But they are not just participating but scoring goals left, right and centre.

After their five games in the first stage group, their scorelines read like this:

Ireland 4-4 Lithuania (2-1 win on penalties)

Ireland 11-4 Bulgaria 

Ireland 13-3 USA

Ireland 15-1 Greece

Ireland 14-1 Sweden

That has naturally put the eight-man strong Ireland panel, managed by Sean Kavanagh, top of the group. 

The Homeless World Cup is 4-a-side competition and is played out in two halves of seven minutes each.

It's a high-tempo game played on a small-sided pitch.
