A soccer match to coincide with the 2015 AFC Asian Cup was held in Yuncheng, Shanxi province. The game attracted dozens of local amateurs, most of whom shared the same dream when they were younger - to became professionals and even join the national team.

Although they ended up as white collar workers, taxi drivers or small business owners, they said their love of the game remains undiminished and that they took part in the match as a way to see their dreams come true.
