Another busy day for the touring footballers. After a lovely breakfast in the hotel restaurant looking over the Atlantic coast the footballer were ready for a full day of football ‘Porto’ style. The students all travelled to the academy training ground where the boys had a football masterclass from the FC Porto coaches and the girls played a local football team. A great performance from the girls with their new teammates made the game very close and a good spectacle watch. The final 1/3 of the match we mixed the sides up to help the girls play with different players. After lunch at the training ground we made our way to play Dragon Force at one of the local stadiums. The 13’s started us off with an impressive 4-0 early lead but the opposition came back into the game which led to an exciting finish (5-3). The 14s won their game 1-0 but they should have scored from the numerous chances they had. Despite the dominance in chances Dragon Force had a chance to equalise at the end but KGS managed to clear it off the line. The 15’s completed the clean sweep of victories with a close 4-3 win after a tense finish. The excitement didn’t stop there as after dinner we had our daily presentations (photos attached) and finished with a bit of bowling in the hotel. All set for another exciting day tomorrow.
