THIS is a belated release for Stephen Chow's feel-good 2001 sports comedy.

One-time soccer golden boy Fung (Man Tat Ng) hopes to coach a team to championship status, if only to wipe the smug grin off his former employer Hung (Yin Tse), coach of the dreaded Team Evil.

Fung approaches Shaolin kung fu expert Sing (Stephen Chow) and his five brothers to join the squad, hoping to use their physical agility and nifty moves on the pitch.

The film was originally in Cantonese but has been dubbed in English for its British release.
