Mini World Cup at the ISK on 27th April 2013

Date 03/05/2013

The teams of the German School Football Centre put up a good show at last weekend's Mini World Cup tournament, scoring plenty of goals and springing at least one surprise.

The U9s kept our flag flying longest by securing third place with several well-taken goals from Johannes Vadera.

The tournament at the International School of Kenya was the first for the new football centre since its formation in January. The centre entered four teams, including two in the hotly contested U9 competition.

The U7s performed well despite several players failing to turn up, some due to illness. To plug the gap, coach Ali Kiplagat called up Kian Molin at short notice, and the boys started well, with Luca Allnoch and Wani Ladu scoring in an opening 2-0 win. However, two subsequent defeats meant that this very young team exited at the group stage.

The football centre had so many U9 players that it entered two teams. The 'B' side suffered a heavy defeat to the 'A' team in a practice game a week earlier. But in the tournament, they stunned ISK's first choice players, winning 2-0 with both goals from Safari Kraus. Despite fine goalkeeping by Dominic Sallat, the team lost its other group games 1-0 and went home with pride intact.


Dominic Sallat and Lelo Bernado try to keep out an attack from Sags Soccer. The U9(B)s conceded only two goals in three games.

For the 'A' team, the target was to equal last year's runners-up position. They didn't quite make it, losing 5-1 to eventual champions Sags Soccer in the semi-final. But they picked themselves up to beat the School of Nations in the third-place playoff. The team stood out for the fine defending of Markus Medcraft and the determination of Johannes Vadera, who netted five times in six games.

David Wekesa and Jaspard Denault were prolific for the U11s, scoring seven of their team's eight goals in three group games. But the boys were eliminated in a nerve-shredding penalty shootout after David and Karl Tenambergen saw their penalties saved by the French School goalkeeper.
