Finally we enter the big pitch again!
We are happy to announce that after the summer break the prestigious 11 a side games are back. Captain Manni (Internacionalitos) and Wen (Mexicanitos) will be organizing their teams every Saturday to compete against each other.
Since July 2018, both teams played 20 times against each other, with Internacionalitos being able to win 10 games and Mexicanitos winning 7 games. The past three games were all won by the locals though.
We will kick-off the games this Saturday, September 21st with a friendly game between team Mannichester and Team Francia. From next week onwards, the games between Internacionalitos and Mexicanitos will take place.
The success of the new team of Mannichester FC got noticed in the soccer scene in Mexico City. The competitive team of players from Mexico, Kenya, France, India, Germany, Brazil, England and Venezuela remain unbeaten to the date. Therefore, Mannichester FC got challenged by a French selection, let by Pablo Moctezuma and Matthieu. There is no doubt that the French selection will come up with a supreme team, having chosen the 13 best players of the 20.000 French people that live in Mexico City.
Who will be the final winner?
The first game between a team of soccer players from Latin America and a team of soccer players from all over the world was a great success. The Mexican dominated Latinos (organised by captain Wen) relied on a Mourinho like defensive play, waiting for the “foreigners” to get into their half before attacking them. Team Rest of the World played all or nothing, as usual.

Therefore, we are happy to announce that this Saturday will be the return game at Centro Deportivo Benito Juarez at 3pm. Both teams have been recruiting some new players that are likely to push the teams to a higher level.
