Walking into the Maracana stadium with German football star Christoph Kramer, Xu Xiaoqi from Beijing became the first Chinese football kid to have participated in the World Cup final game. She and another five boys who participated in the semi-final, were selected from amongst more than 4,000 Chinese children after a month long competition. They were chosen to go to Brazil because of their impressive football skills and their enthusiasm for the game.
