Ball boy becomes China's lucky charm

A 12-year-old Brisbane ball boy who has become something of a lucky charm for China’s team at AFC Asian Cup Australia 2015 has been invited to attend China’s training session on Monday.

Stephan White, who has become a mini celebrity in China, was on duty at China’s opening match when their opponents Saudi Arabia were awarded a penalty.

As goalkeeper Wang Dalei readied himself to face the penalty he apparently asked Stephan which way he should dive. Stephan indicated left. The goalie took his advice and saved the spot-kick. The score was 0-0 at the time and China went on to win 1-0.
