England Football Academy Warm Up with Urawa Reds!

As preparation for the trip to Madrid, James arranged a pre-tournament warm up game in Manchester against touring Japanese team Urawa Reds.

Urawa Reds, a professional team in Japan, bring over to the North West of England, 30 young players every year for the experience of English football, and each year our Edukick team have the opportunity to play them.

I a great game the lads showed how far they had come in the last two terms, with some great individual performances from Ryan, Kevin, and Victor along with great overall team spirit.

The result went Urawa reds way, 3 – 1 with the three goals coming to them from lapse in concentration, but something James is confident once they get out to Madrid they can rectify.

Wednesday morning these lads flew out for the weekend to join up with other international Edukick teams and local Spanish teams.

Good luck to them all!
