A number of young students in western Indonesia held a mucky "mud soccer" match in some rice fields on June 9.

This mud soccer competition, held on an unplanted rice paddy in the city of Padang, is done as a gesture of friendship after celebrating Eid al-Fitr, as part of a school holiday running until June 12.

The match has teams of five-a-side for two grimy rounds of 15 minutes.
