Team Ellan Vannin is realising a dream as it reaches the final of an International football tournament.

The ConIFA World Football Cup is being held in Sweden.

Last night, they beat Arameans Suryoye 4-1 in the semi-final - despite falling behind in the 10th minute.

They were tipped at 250-1 to win when the competition began - as one of the only amateur sides in the competition. Now, they'll face the French Nice team in the final tomorrow.

It's looking hopeful for the Island's team; as this week, they won 4-2 against the same team in a group match.
