It was an interesting game in the 14thencounter between Internacionalitos and Mexicanos. Team Mexicanos integrated 4 new players into their team, while Internacionalitos was able to play with their experienced players. Captain Manni from India made sure to have a competitive team this weekend, after having lost 1:2 the week before. He was recruiting his best players throughout the week. The group welcomed the new Mexicans Max, Roberto, Dimitri and Victor to the competitive Saturday 11 a side games:
Subs: Bruno (VEN)
Jens (GER) – Jon (ENG) – Nabil (FR) – Tomo (JAP)
Manni (c) (IN) – Pablo (FR) – Danilo (BRA) – Kim (GER) – Andre (BRA)
While many players were traveling all around the country for Semana Santa, 24 soccer players from 9 different countries gathered together to play at the traditional Saturday 11 a side game. We were happy to welcome several new guys to the games at Benito Juarez Stadium. Argentinian Niku, Venezuelan Bruno and Mexican goalkeeper Gerry complemented the Latinos. On the other side, Mexican Dani and Maye and Irish Troy supported the Rest of the World team. In general, it was a highly latino-influenced game. Only Josh (England), Theo (France), Troy (Irland), Jens (Germany) and mighty Mike (USA) represented the non-latino part. The new players were integrated very quickly into the teams. Both teams decided to play in a traditional 4-4-2 formation:
Subs: Niku (ARG)
Gerry (GK) (MX)
Angel (MX) – Manu (MX) – Wen (MX) – Jorge (MX)
Christian (MX) – Oscar (VEN) – Hazael (MX) – Alberto (MX)
It was the first encounter between team Rest of the World and Mannichester FC this past Saturday at the beautiful Benito Juarez Stadium in the heart of Mexico City. Team Mannichester arrived with a team of players from 8 different nationalities. Team Rest of the World had a strong Mexican influence with 7 players, next to their 2 Japanese players and Ferro and Andre from Venezuela and Brazil. Both teams had one Brazilian player.

First game between Latinos and players from the Rest of the World
Here we are back again with a very interesting clash, this time we played Latinos vs Rest of the World. The weekends are getting warmer each week and this adds to more charged people for the games.
Team Latinos started the game in a 4-4-2 formation, with captain Wen starting alongside Hector. José de Venezuela, Andre de Brazil y Hector de El Salvador were the three only non-mexican players for the Latinos. Team Rest of the World (ROW), with four players from the US!!!, and other players from Japan, France, Germany, India, Portugal and India, was back with their favorite 4-4-2 formation, with captain Manni lining up with Kim in defence. You usually don’t see defenders captaining the games but here at sport-12 you can be anything because here you are the star!!!
Sunday soccer at Taxqueña Arena. The place where soccer players meet up on Sundays to have fun playing soccer like Messi, Ronaldinho and Chicharito.
Yesterday’s game was special because Amaury and a small part of his group showed up after having had the first 11 a side game of Team International against them about half a year ago (see photo below). It seems like soon they will be ready to have a revenge game.
Passion – Energy and Friendship at Thursday Games in CDMX
A lot of passion and energy could be felt at the Thursday game last week between the international crew of captain Carlos and Team International’s Mannichester FC. All players gathered together to have fun playing 1:30 hours in the north of Mexico City.
While Mannichester had a tremendous start of the day scoring 8:2 goals by strikers Edward and Joshua, Carlos’ crew came back strong into the game in the second part of the game.
A new experience for Team International’s Mannichester FC. The team played for the first time on an 11-a-side natural grass pitch. Several people did not have the right cleats for such a rare but fantastic soccer pitch. But the team consisting of players from Venezuela, Germany, India, United States, El Salvador and Mexico did a great job on their first competitive game on natural grass.
After a quick team discussion right before the game, the following line-up was decided on with a 4-4-1-1 formation:
Fun, action and a lot of passion characterized the social soccer games at Taxqueña once more. At yesterday’s Fut7 games 19 soccer fanatics from England, Canada, El Salvador, Belgium, Mexico, Brazil, Germany, France, United States and Colombia played for two hours in the burning sun.
It all looked like Mannichester would be again to strong for a selective team of PwC employees. After having lost the first game 18:7, PwC wanted to make sure they would leave the pitch of the return game as winners. But until half time the consultants were loosing 7:4 already. The possibility of having to loose again against the international team of newly created Mannichester were high.
