July 20th - one team left in Gothia Cup, boys 18s, and after breakfast we trek to our fields and lay a egg. we lose 2-1 but fight to the end as Grant Harris scored a goal late to pull us close but we are just too beat up, too tired, etc.
We walk miles upon miles daily and our legs are just not ready for this and we are mentally and physically exhausted. fyi, the boys are not allowed to use the elevators, so stairs are adding to our fatigue.
Remember this tour is about complete physical, mental, and individual player improvement. As much as we want to win, winning will come as a byproduct. great day here though and after lunch we wash our uniforms, thank God for that as some of them can stand in the corner.
We also require all of the boys, in groups of 5 to do some match analysis of a Brazilian team so we can start looking at games with a different outlook. time to shop, relax, wash clothes, etc, as our evening is pretty open.
