(The Philippine Star) - July 23, 2017 - 4:00pm

MANILA, Philippines - The Makati Football Club toughened up for the Gothia World Youth Cup by competing against foreign rivals in various age-group divisions in the JSSL International Soccer 7’s tournament in Padang, Singapore recently.

The C2 Cool and Clean-sponsored soccer club fielded in 80 players in the boys’ 10, 11, 12, 13 and 14 age categories, who slugged it out with their counterparts from Australia, China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Oman, Portugal, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and United Kingdom.

The MFC kids, including Kenjie Rance, Carl Vivash, Joaquin Collo, Inigo Castro, Alfonso Gonzalez, Josh Merino, Andrei Gonzalez, Dominic Tom and Agiel Rojo, impressed the opposition with their skills and guts throughout the three-day tournament.

“I’m very pleased with our success as it validates our program of improving our players’ skills and output by introducing them to more intense competition in international tournaments. But we have a lot of work to do,” said MFC chief operating officer Selu Lozano.

Since 2016, C2 has been backing the MFC kids as part of its #ShareC2Love campaign, which is about giving back and giving thanks to the brand’s loyal consumers.

Some of the team members were Kenjie Rance, Carl Vivash, Joaquin Collo, Inigo Castro, Alfonso Gonzalez, Josh Merino, Andrei Gonzalez, Dominic Tom and Agiel Rojo.

Meanwhile, the Makati Football Club hopes to improve on its back-to-back third place finishes in the Gothia Cup set this month in Sweden.
