Vasco Juniors For Brazil Tour

Vasco da Gama’s U15 boys side, which includes a fourteen-year-old Icelandic girl, are scheduled to play in a combined futsal/football international tournament in Brazil next week, while they will also attend two FIFA Confederations Cup matches.

Furthermore, besides competing for the Gol Brasil Cup in Belo Horizonte, the team that is coached by Jose Cabral is expected to spend five days in Rio de Janeiro where, if everything goes to plan, they’ll meet the Brazilian national team at their Granja Comary training headquarters on Friday.

 

“We play five official football games,” Cabral tells Soccer-Laduma. “Our opponents include club sides from Australia, England, USA as well as two from Brazil. It’ll be great for the boys to experience such good opposition and at the same time enjoy the atmosphere of the Confederations Cup. Vasco will support Africa by watching Nigeria play Tahiti.”

 

Cabral has nothing but praise for his foreign striker, Emelía Einarsdóttir, who with her unique somersault-assisted throw-in can reach a distance of around fifty metres, while also outdoing her teammates at pushups.

 

“When doing physical tests with my team I discovered just how tough, strong she is. In pushups she beats all the boys, after scoring usually does three back flips and her throw-ins reach inside the box, she’s incredible!”

 

“Last season, aged 13, she top scored for the Bothasig Ladies seniors,” Cabral concluded.
