Welcome to the VYS United's 2011 Italy Cup blog! I will be posting pre-travel information in preparation for our big trip. And while we're in Italy, our travelers will try to capture as many of our exciting activities as possible! Please feel free to view & post a comment to our blog anytime.
The France team (their jerseys read U17-U16) was very physical, skilled, and fast. Run of play was definitely on their side for most of the game. They punished our team after making the smallest of mistakes. – soft passes, kicks to no one, missed tackles. Both goalies, Stephen & Evan, made some outstanding saves, even though the game outcome didn’t reflect their efforts. Good learning experience for our guys, make a mistake and you will get shellacked! Can’t really critique this game, we played a very good team and we had some opportunities on goal, but we just couldn’t finish. C’est la vie… 3-0 France
