TCFC Players travel to Barcelona, Spain to play in the MIC 16 (Mediterranean International Cup).
For the 2nd year running, TCFC has sent players to participate in widely respected European international youth soccer tournament with affiliate club, Manhattan Kickers FC. Last year, it was 2003’s Jake Bergin and Aidan Wolf who were fortunate enough to make the trip and play vs teams such as Liverpool FC (England). Both players had wonderful experiences and came home more mature and quality players that when they had left, which was all the reason to try and send two more on the trip of a lifetime.
This year 2004’s…Collin Folds and Logan Brown traveled to Barcelona, Spain to participate in one of the world’s most competitive and prestigious youth tournaments available. As guests with TCFC’s affiliate club out of New York City, (Manhattan Kickers FC, www.manhattankickersfc.com), run by former teammate and longtime friend of Coach Chris Dore’…MKFC Director, Evan Rosenthal.
Although, the soccer was the highlight, the overall experience was not just limited to soccer as the players were able to take part in the entire Catalonian culture while visiting the local sites, attending the FC Barcelona vs Arsenal UEFA Champions League game and much more.
The boys had the opportunity to take part in numerous training sessions by top-level coaches, exhibition games vs teams from Hong Kong and Spain and competed in the top tournament around.
Highlight Video (below) of the MIC 16…check it out!
RCD Espanyol was their first match. RCD Espanyol, also located in the city limits of Barcelona were the eventually champions, and although the final result was not ideal (a 8-2 loss), MKFC were the only team in the entire event that actually had a lead against this team of future superstars.
Next up was UE Rapitenca, another very good local Catalonian side. MKFC did not have a favorable result in this match, losing 6-2, however, Rapitenca was a quarterfinalist in this event so needless to say, our draw was a bit tough. But another quality experience.
The third match was against CCE Montessori Palau and this time around MKFC was on the winning end, earning a solid 10-1 victory, which earned them a place in the final phase of the event (Round of 32).
Now came the knockout phase, which MKFC found themselves playing against English powerhouse, Tottenham Hotspurs FC. The game was a difficult one and Tottenham Hotspurs FC had too much this time around, but what an experience to play with and against players of this caliber!
The trip finished up with an exciting friendly match against Southampton FC out of England.
Collin and Logan…Congratulations on a wonderful experience and HUGE thank you to Evan and Hector and the entire Manhattan Kickers FC organization for making this possible again!
