Cheer on your country in Brazil's Expats' Cup tournament

With the Fifa World Cup just weeks away, Brazil is currently holding another international football event.

The first ever Copa Gringos - or Expats' Cup - is a tournament between 24 teams whose players are all expats from around the world, who now live in Sao Paulo.

BBC Brasil followed two players - a Paraguayan clothes maker and a Japanese executive - as they went about their lives in the city and asked what it means to them to represent their country, albeit unofficially.
