Australian football first came to Timor-Leste in 2007 when several friends who liked to kick the ball around jokingly put together the East Dili Eels. Later that year, two Timorese played in the country's first AFL match between the Australian army and UN police. Now, six teams play in Dili with mostly Timorese players, including Romaldo Barreto, one of the original two players from the first match in 2007. East Timor's national team, the Crocs, were formed in 2008. They play in Bali twice a year, have toured Darwin and debuted at the International Cup in 2011.
