STFX Soccer Academy – Italia Tour 2009
HIGHLIGHTS OF ITALIA 2009
After keeping the U-17 Juventus Academy to a half time 0-0 score, the Juve boys took advantage of a late second half penalty to break the deadlock. The penalty was followed by two other goals towards the end of the match as they overcame Xavier Academy’s outstanding performance. In the last of the Academy’s 8 matches of their Italia 2009 Tour, the boys played their best soccer.
Kassim Khimji was excellent in goal and displayed the best performance a goalkeeper from FX has given the Academy, including their recent tours to England and college showcase tournaments.
- Pre competition training camp in Lake Garda, Verona.
- Played 8 matches in two weeks.
