B-Human is a University of Bremen project that lets computing and robotics students work with researchers to develop top-end football players for the RoboCup.

At CeBIT in Hannover this week, the footie robots were practicing their moves for all to see.

Read on to find out how the robots hope to win the World Cup by 2050.
