England and Liverpool Ladies midfielder Fara Williams explains how focusing on football helped her get her life back on track while she was homeless for six years.
The now 30-year-old balanced living rough and in hostels with impressing on the football pitch, while her team-mates were none the wiser.
Williams's experiences led her to work with the Homeless FA, where she coaches homeless girls and women every week.
