Last weekend we were invited to travel to Verona to play in the Mediterranean Cup 2014. This was simply a great experience for all of our U14 IS Berne soccer team members. During the tournament, we competed against 24 teams from 14 different countries. The tournament started on Friday and finished on Sunday. During these three days we played in nine games, made many new friends from different schools and countries, and visited the city of Verona.
The team showed a great spirit and attitude throughout the tournament. As we got used to playing together, improvement in our confidence and team play was clear to see. Though we did not compete at the top of the table, we defended our honor by not finishing at the bottom of the table, and by bringing home one of only three ‘best player’ awards which made our team proud. One of the biggest lessons we learnt was that if we believe in ourselves and trust in our team, then we could compete with everyone.Return to Sports
