Football Chess - Photo's

In a shop in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, a set of Football Chess was bought. This is a small commercial Chinese game. The game has little to nothing in common with chess, and also little to nothing in common with football, except that the pieces show football players. The game looks like a variant of the well known Snakes and Ladders game, with the difference that players start at different sides and may have more than one pawn to play with.
