Our Under 14s & U16s teams participated in the 2022 Mina Cup in Dubai.
We took the event as a chance to prepare furthermore for Gothia Cup in the summer.
The Alliance U14s boys played Sturm Gratz of Austria, Wolves of England, Bhayangkara of Indonesia & GoPro from UAE.
It was a tense few days for the players who gave it all they’ve got.
The Alliance U16s boys had the challenging task of competing in the U18s category.
We wanted the boys to be in an uncomfortable situation to raise their awareness & readiness for the matches.
Players stepped up their game by sticking to the team’s game plan—so many top performers in each match, which reflects how dedicated the players were.
We finished 6th in the tournament, but more importantly, we showed intelligence by understanding that an underdog team with a plan can get a result against stronger teams.
