They entertained the crowd with some fancy footwork and play, whitewashed their opponents and most importantly, Enjoy FC samba-ed their way to Brazil by emerging the winners of the Nike Cup Kuala Lumpur 5 vs 5 Challenge 2010 at Dataran Merdeka.

With a scintillating display of teamwork and passing that even soccer kings Brazilians would have been proud of, Enjoy FC ran riot against Belia Seri Perantau 5-0, in the final.

At the final whistle, Enjoy FC’s players and supporters celebratedthe win which came with a trip to Rio De Janeiro, Brazil for a training stint at the Brazilian national team’s football training camp in Granja Comary.

It took awhile for Enjoy FC’s Captain Marvel Mohd Sheqal Salim and his teammates to digest the magnitude of their feat as it has been a lifelong dream to train in the land of the football gods of Brazil.

"First and foremost, we would like to thank Nike for giving us a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity like this. They helped aspiring footballers like us realise our dreams," said the nippy Mohd Sheqal.

“We talked among ourselves about how awesome it would be to win the tournament. Now, we are on an entirely different planet. But we will snap back to reality and start packing our bags for Brazil the moment we reach home."

All five boys will board the plane for Brazil on August 9 and will be part of a youth training programme for 12 days. They will also take with them RM2,000 worth of Nike products which came with the winning prize.

“No matter what, luck always plays a role. Not everyone will get a chance like this. So, when we come back, we want to share our knowledge and experience with our friends and family. We will teach them the way football should be played...Brazilian style!”
