The Under 16 tournament which has already attracted more than 13 top junior teams shall be played at the Sadili Soccer Academy grounds starting at 8:30 am. 5 ASIDE STREET SOCCER is not only interesting to watch but also played with feeling. Skilled girls making swift runs, insightful passes and endless strength and beauty were some of the qualities on display this Saturday.
