near Sao Paulo in Brazil. twenty-
two Chinese teenagers are
playing football on a rough
football pitch .
They are the top tee nage

China . One day they are going to

Brazilian football coach, Ecio
Pasca. They start at six o'clock

practise and study football for
eight hours a day, six days a
week.
They can only go back home to
C hina for o ne short trip to see
their fam ilies. In their free time in

video tapes on an o ld video. The

sometimes very hard here. I miss
my family terribly, but I want to
be successful .'
Patricia Otavio has a small cafe
in Juquitiba. 'Everybody here
