ANB Futbol tournament contact, Marcelo Almeida said, “It was amazing to see all the players enjoying the event and then watching the same style of play from U-9 all the way to U-14. The passing combinations showed a lot of skill & tactical awareness on the field. There is always a sense of accomplishment for any coach to see what we work on in training come out in a game. Congratulations to all the ANB coaches & players for their success & thank you to the tournament organizers for hosting a great event!”
ANB Futbol is planning on participating in the event again in 2017.
