Cup of Nations at Taxqueña Arena
At yesterday’s Sunday Casual Soccer Games at Taxqueña Arena 23 players from 11 nations in 3 teams played the Cup of Nations: Team1: UK, Team2: France, Team3: Jakeventus.
Jakeventus had a good start winning a few games in a row in the beginning. The veterans had a slight advantage since they play together for several months already and therefore know each other better than Messi and Alba. The team mates always made sure for example to play the ball into the feet of Jake instead of sending him for a run, which is of no benefit to the team.
But team France and also team UK later on showed why their countries are one of the most soccer fanatic countries. They both managed to score several goals and finished as the winner of several games.
All together the three teams played around 20 five minute games within two hours at Taxqueña Arena Culhuacanes. The winner is yet to be awarded since the jury is still counting the goals of the teams as all teams won exactly the same amount of games.
A big applause to Tom, Marcos, Hazael, Hector, Danny and of course Manni-Mourinho who participated in both games this weekend and showing a restless performance like everyone else on yesterday’s Cup of Nations!
