Six lucky teenagers from Danzhai County, southwest China's Guizhou Province, assumed the role of flag-holders at the opening match of the World Cup in Russia on June 14.

The youngsters, who escorted the FIFA flag on the final leg of its journey to Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow, were chosen in April from around 4,000 students who participated in the selection.
