a footballing lesson

Filed under: Uncategorized — notyalcsdrawkcab @ 8:41 pm

The u20s have had their 3 group stage matches. They earned the right to be there at the u20 WC. Were there negatives to the campaign? Yeah, but positives might also come out of the campaign. The biggest positive was that the boys received a footballing lesson. All of the guys in that team must have dreams of a 10 year career as a pro. With most of that career in Europe. But hopefully they can see how much competition there is now for those spots in Europe – not just the Spanish lads (some of whom are now getting game time in Britain – one guy plays for Norwich) but also the Costa Ricans and the Ecuadorians. Joel Campbell of Costa Rica played for his senior team at the Copa America. Will someone’s hunger for improvement grow after that campaign? I hope so.
