Giants of the North: Brazil’s Dwarf Football Team

For a team of dwarves, this has to be one of the best team names ever: The Gigantes do Norte (Giants of the North). The team is far from a joke though. They play 40 minute matches against top youth teams in Belem, Para State, North Brazil. The matches are played on full size fields with full size goals, and these players are definitely not lacking in skills. Their coach even claims that some would be professionals if they were a little bit taller. The average height of the team is about four feet, and they are allowed to carry a teammate on their shoulders when defending against free-kicks.
