Great work by the team that continues to enjoy this great experience.
The game began with dominance of our JC11 academy, both teams proposed a game, although Vision Foot made a more direct attack with their most offensive players, who were very physical. Despite this, we were able to control their attacks well, balancing the team in the center of the field, with forcefulness from the back and a good pressing up top by the most offensive players, which prevented them from striking easily. The match became very intense, but we knew how to control our emotions and keep a cool head, so that we were in control of the match. After a set piece, Jorge manages to connect a rebound inside the area and scores the first for our JC11 academy. We didn’t slow down and kept going for more. Vision Foot, after one of its attacks, causes Ilia to make a good save, to keep us ahead on the scoreboard and thus reach the half-time break. In the second half, we continued with our game plan, and in a very good pressure from Alex, to his defense, he manages to steal the ball and put a cross into the area, where Ximo, with a splendid back heel, leaves it behind to Pau, who arrives like a plane, and puts the second for ours. Vision Foot pressed and managed to crash a ball into the woodwork, forcing Ilia to make a couple of good hands to keep a clean sheet and take the 3 points in the second match of this group stage. We competed very well, with great discipline and sacrifice on the part of all the players.
The mentality of the JC11 Academy team was ideal, following their line of organized play channeled with the ball and intense pressure after losses. We were able to manage the two-goal lead very well and never relaxed at any time, maintaining a very high level throughout the game. The teamwork and constant help made it possible to obtain those 3 points.
Our base is to form great people who play and develop soccer at the highest possible level, and being aware that in this sport the most important thing in this formative stage will NEVER be the result.
