Mesut Ozil and Paul Pogba paid for surgery for 22 children in Tanzania

While the Euros are going on, 11 football players will cover the costs of surgery for 11 children in Tanzania, through the charity BigShoe11.

The first two players to get involved were Germany's Mesut Ozil and France's Paul Pogba.

The surgeries are for children with burn injuries and club foot - prevalent issues in developing and newly industrialised countries.

BigShoe began at World Cup 2006, when the Togo national team got together to fund a young Togolese girl's operation.
