Futbol Salou & Spanish Pro License Masterclass.
WPSS U12 enjoyed two Masterclass Sessions with Catalonian Pro License coaches at the incredible Futbol Salou Facility.
FC Barcelona Vs Villareal
The boys got to really enjoy the football culture in Europe as they watched a must win game for FC Barcelona in front of a sold out 90,500 fans at the Camp Nou! Barcelona won the match 4-1 as we witnessed; Messi, Neymar and Suarez get in on the scoring action!
WPSS Vs Reus Deportiu A
Result 1-11 (Scorer: Ishveer Singh)
The Tour opening was against a very strong academy side from Reus Deportiu ‘A’ – A well known feeder club to FC Barcelona. WPSS U12 took some adjusting to find the rhythm of the 7v7 game in Spain and found it a difficult test to match the tempo of the Spanish side. A great first challenge!
WPSS Vs CD Ribadumia
Result: 3-2 (Scorers: Fergus Gillion 2, Ishveer Singh)
In their last preparation match before the Arousa Futbol 7 tournament, the team faced local side CD Ribadumia. A clinic display by the boys who took their chances well and despite a close scoreline, thoroughly deserved the win.
