In Algeria, young sportsmen held a spring cleaning at one of the largest municipal football stadiums to pay respect to the F4F key values, followed by friendly matches between local children and the programme's Young Ambassadors. In South Africa , the youth football academy Young Bafana held a friendly beach football match, and before that, a golf competition - after all, real friendship is possible in any sport.
