    Default Soccer's Lost Boys-African Soccer Slave Trade

    Current TV recently aired a disturbing documentary "Soccer Slaves" that explores the terrible practice of trafficking young African males to Europe just for the chance to play professional soccer.

    Apparently some parents view soccer as the only means of getting their families out of poverty. This desperation has led parents to place their children in the hands of unscrupulous traffickers who, when they can't make a quick buck off the boys, leave the boys alone in the streets. These boys find themselves in a foreign country with no language skills, no money and no way of getting back to their parents. Some of the boys end up being forced into prostitution.
