The children in Africa United travel approximately 3,000 miles through seven countries from Rwanda to South Africa in order to be at the world cup. To travel the whole length of Great Britain from Lands End in Cornwall to John o' Groats in Scotland is about 900 miles. So the children's journey in Africa United can be compared to travelling the entire length of the Great Britain more than three times!

Download and print out the map below, label the countries and draw a line showing the journey made by the children in the film through each of these countries.
