Fancy playing international football for Yorkshire?

Yorkshire now has its own international football team.

On Saturday the county was officially recognised by the Confederation of International Football Associations as a country.

But if you were thinking bring on the likes of Germany and Brazil, you would be wrong.

Yorkshire instead will be playing country's not recognised by FIFA like Greenland, Zanzibar and Tibet.

Nicknamed the Vikings the players trialling for a place in the side come from the non-league structure.

You need to be born in Yorkshire and for these often overlooked players it's a second chance at the big time.

Yorkshire's debut match will be against the Isle of Man later this month.
