Talented twins represent country in football | Updated: 2017-09-05 14:32

A pair of 20-year-old twins from Wuhan, capital of Central China's Hubei Province, both played football at the 13th National Games in Tianjin.

Yao Wei plays in China's Women's National Football Team, and her twin brother Yao Daogang is the captain of China's National Under 20 Football Team.

The twins used to study at Xinhe Village Primary School, a traditional football school in Wuhan.

The twins' father is a great football fan who sent his son to learn football when he was young. His daughter joined in the training to kill time while she waited for her brother.

The twins turned out to be both talented football players, and the sister joined China's national team this January.
