World Cup Festival Camp
Over forty players participated in the club’s World Cup Festival Camp July 14-17th. Players were broken into three training groups and competed in various scrimmage type activities to give them experience at applying their technical skills within game situations. At the end of each session the players from all three groups joined together and competed in a World Cup game culminating in final play-off games on the Thursday...and the 1st place final game that everybody wanted to see in the real World Cup – Brazil vs. Argentina did not disappoint as the teams battled to a 2-2 tie. Not wanting to put the spotlight on one player who would be ridiculed in the world media we decided to crown joint Champions:
Meanwhile the Wooden Spoon game (7th vs. 8th place) was just as hotly contested with Costa Rica outscoring France 5 – 4. The players are pictured celebrating with the coveted Wooden Spoon and are obviously happy despite their 7th place finish.
Full results of the final play-off games:
- 1st place = Brazil 2 France 2
- 3rd Place = Belgium 5 Germany 4
- 5th Place = Colombia 6 Netherlands 3
