FILE - In this file photo taken Sunday, Feb. 19, 2012, Chinese Vice President Xi Jinping kicks a football during visit to Croke Park Stadium, Dublin, Ireland. Xi, 59 and the country's vice president is expected to take over as head of the ruling party in November, 2012, before becoming president in 2013 of an increasingly assertive China. Tall and heavyset, married to a popular folk singer in the military, Xi is at ease in groups, in contrast to China's typically stiff and aloof leaders, such as current President Hu Jintao.
