Why ther is no "sind" after "Wir" ?

Because you shouldn't translate it word for word. In German wir spielen means both "we play" and "we are playing" since there's no continuous tense.

Besides, if you want a hypothetical, obviously wrong rendering of "we are playing", it would be wir sind die spielenden, not wir sind spielen.
