Last year, the Danwei TV crew made a documentary film about Beijing's African football team: African Boots of Beijing.
We caught up with the team again this year to see how they were doing at the end of their season, just as World Cup fever hit Beijing. This short video follows the team for two important matches after they won the IFFC League: the Cup, and the Super Cup.
Sinvu, one of the team's loyal supporters also answers the question: what is it like being black in China?
This video is also available on Danwei TV, where there are also links to other formats and to a downloadable Quicktime file.
