Last Saturday saw our Semi Final stage come to an end, where Italian giants Roma took on the most successful German team in recent history, Bayern Munich. On a glorious sunny morning, the group were an absolute pleasure to coach which ended with ROMA being crowned winners and taking their place in tomorrow’s final..
We welcomed some new players into the group and we hope they enjoyed their first session with us – we started with our favourite warm up game to welcome them to Saturday Soccer and to ensure they settle in as quickly as possible. Bayern Munich were quick out of the blocks in Bulldog and took the first points in what was going to be a belter of a fixture!
Next up was a game called KINGS & QUEENS, where the players had to protect their castles from the destroyers, the destroyers were working on their dribbling and passing skills to try and knock over the castles. The Kings & Queens were then trying to defend their castle by using a variety tackling & defending skills - we were particularly impressed with the dribble moves used by the destroyers to successfully knock down the castles..some of the stepovers & maradona’s were superb!!
After Kings & Queens – ROMA equalised leaving the tie equally poised at 1 – 1 going into the tournaments..
During our tournaments, tensions were high as each player showed fantastic effort & quality on the ball to win them all-important points for their team..as each match went by, the points were becoming tougher & tougher to win & by the end, the team in orange were victorious as ROMA booked their place in tomorrow’s Champions League final against Juventus!
