Darfur United and the alternative World Cup

6 June 2014 Last updated at 03:02 BST

Darfur United are not a team known for playing in big football tournaments - in fact, they have rarely played on a real pitch, with a full team against another real team.

But the group of refugees from western Sudan have travelled to Sweden for what some are calling the alternative World Cup.

The CONIFA World Football Cup is a tournament for international teams that are not recognised by FIFA.

Other teams include the Isle of Man, Kurdistan, South Ossetia and a group representing the Tamil people from around the World.

BBC News went to Sweden to meet Darfur United and some of the other people involved.
