JIYSC Represents GPS in Europe
This week, two JIYSC players are in Europe to represent Global Premier Soccer.
Julia Cosgrove of JIYSC 06 Girls Red is currently in Munich, Germany as part of the GPS ID U13 Girls team. During Julia’s trip, she will have games against local German opposition, train with the FC Bayern coaches at the famous FC Bayern Campus. On top of this, Julia will be able to watch some of the best players in the world practice and play as she gets to watch Bayern’s First Team practice at the Campus and play in a league game at the Allianz Arena. In Julia’s first two games in Germany they came out as 6-0 and 4-2 winners!
Also in Europe this week is Alex Heller of JIYSC 02 Boys Red. Alex travelled to Spain last weekend to prepare and compete in the Mediterranean International Cup (MIC). A renowned elite competition in Europe, the MIC has some notable former participants including Gerard Pique of Barcelona and Spain, Neymar of PSG and Brazil, and Mohammed Salah of Liverpool and Egypt, to name a few.
Alex will represent GPS Spain Under 16s side and has the potential to come up against some of the best sides in youth soccer. Barcelona, Real Madrid, and Manchester City are some of the top sides who are being represented in this years MIC. Having already defeated Villarreal CF in a preparation game for the tournament, we are all excited to hear how Alex will get on as part of the GPS Spain team.
