Offside in Saigon

Manu, Chigozye and Ezekiel are 3 Africans footballers hoping for a contract in a professional club in Vietnam, praying that a career in football will make them rich and famous. They belong to an amateur outfi t called Africa Team Vietnam. The team plays friendly games with league clubs in the hopes of showcasing it’s players’ talents so they might win a contract. But the clubs have other channels for signing foreign players. As a result Ezekiel and his team mates, live in a limbo, playing matches nobody watches, with little hope of being signed up. Against all odds Ezekiel fi nds a way out.
