"The fact that he has been chosen speaks volumes for what he has achieved and is also global recognition for the work of AITC."
 
AITC chief executive, Michael Edwards, added, “Nathan's story is a shining example of the work that we do, so he is the ideal person to represent us in Chile and be part of this project.

"I feel I've been very lucky, but it's also good to show the young people I regularly work with that if you work hard and stick with it, then you will get more opportunities."

Nathan told seagulls.co.uk, "To represent your country in anything is a really proud moment.
 
The health and development officer has volunteered to take charge of the Three Lions, a side he has previously captained during the 2007 version of the Homeless World Cup in Copenhagen, after enduring his very own fight with homelessness.

The 2014 Homeless World Cup in Santiago, Chile, takes place from 19th to 26th October.

AITC, in partnership with the Homeless FA, held this year's training centre in Brighton, allowing homeless people in the area to play football and improve their self-confidence and self-esteem, while teaching them leadership and a range of other vital life skills in the process.
 
Nathan recently returned from a trip to Brazil where he represented AITC as part of the 'Global Youth Forum on Football for Social Change', organised by international football charity Street Football World during this summer's FIFA World Cup.
 
Sixty-three teams from 49 nations and over 500 players will compete in over 350 matches that will be played during the course of the tournament.
 
The annually-held football tournament allows teams of homeless people to compete, using football as a way to improve their lives, and the lives of others who struggle with homelessness.
