Africa's first amputee soccer cup begins today in Sierra Leone.
In this tournament, the outfield players are missing a leg and the goalkeepers are missing an arm. Many of these players lost their limbs in civil wars.
Five African teams are competing in this tournament. The winning team will advance to the Amputee World Football Championship in Turkey.
Sierra Leone is facing off against Nigeria in the opening match in Freetown. The game is expected to draw thousands of fans.
