    represent sb to do sth

    Could we say 'They will represent our class to take part in the football game'? Could we use the structure of 'represent sb to do sth'?

    Thank you in advance.

    The idea of taking part is actually inherent in the verb , so

    They will represent our class in the football match

    should be sufficient.
