Meglio u14s 2017 play FC Barcelona u14s
U14 Futsal champions Meglio United had a spectacular week in October as they travelled to Spain to take on world champions F.C. Barcelona.
They kicked off the week with a night in Manchester, beating Manchester Futsal Club 14-2 before flying to Spain the next day. During their 5 day stay the team enjoyed 2 training sessions with top Spanish coaches, including F.C. Barcelona coach Santi Rodriguez. They also went on a tour of the Nou Camp stadium and stayed in the fabulous Cambrils Sports Village, complete with sports facilities and spa/swimming pools.
The game against F.C. Barcelona saw the Meglio boys take the lead twice, leading 2-1 at the end of the first quarter. Eventually Barcelona’s large squad of 14 (to Meglio’s 6) made the difference and the world champions ran out 10-3 winners, but they were given a real run for their money.
The week concluded with a 9-4 victory over highly rated Spanish side CFS Cambrils. The team had a wonderful week and attention now turns to future challenges.
