As the Rio Olympics unites people from around the world in sport, a football club in Hungary is also doing its bit for integration.

Inter CDF brings together refugees who have landed in the country – people from Nigeria, Cameron, Iraq, Iran and Libya.

“In this team, those who joined this team, even those who don’t speak Hungarian, they often learn here because the main language is Hungarian,” said Kissinger Nnuji, an engineer from Nigeria.

Another player, Antem Sebastien Egbala, from Cameroon, added: “I came to Hungary in 2013. Since then, I’ve been playing with Inter CDF as a defender. I try to do my best.”

Founded in 2006, Inter CDF was originally set up to help footballers from Africa who struggled to be accepted by clubs.

A decade on, it is getting everyone together on the pitch – with the goal of helping refugees to feel at home in Hungary.
