I have a structure containing

struct XboxFriends
{
	char gamertag[SIZE];
	char name[SIZE];
	char country[SIZE];
	char city[SIZE];
	char favoriteGames[SIZE];
	int age;
};

this code is supposed to keep track of my xbox friends. I also have written a function

void searchFriends(vector<XboxFriends> &friends)
{
	string gameName;
	cout << "--- Favorite Game Search ---\n\n";
	cout << "Search Keyword: ";
	cin.ignore();
	getline(cin, gameName);
	
		for(unsigned int i=0; i<friends.size(); i++)
	{
		if (gameName == friends[i].favoriteGames)
			cout << friends[i].gamertag << endl;			
	}
	cout << endl;
	cout << endl;
}

This code is supposed to search through my friends favorite games and if they match they return the gamertag name. I realize that right now my code is just comparing the input to the whole string and returning the gamertags of those that match. I was just wondering if anyone could give me some advice on how to search the string for just keywords and still return the gamertags of those that match?
