France wins World Cup tournament on campus

France - Winners

The University of Liverpool held its own World Cup football tournament which saw 32 teams representing the countries taking part in this year’s FIFA World Cup in Brazil.

The competitive five-a-side clash was won by France after a thrilling final against Costa Rica which ended 0-0 and 4-3 on penalties.

The tournament, which took place in the Sports & Fitness Centre on campus, was open to all University of Liverpool students and was held to celebrate the start of the FIFA World Cup in Brazil.

Some participants were representing their home nation while others just chose a team to represent.

After the tournament, participants headed over to the Augustus John pub on campus to watch the opening Brazil vs Croatia match in the World Cup. The winners received a World Cup trophy as well as medals which were also received by the runner-ups.

Ryan Swinney, from Sport Liverpool who organised the event, said: “All of the students involved showed great sportsmanship and there were some thrilling matches for all the spectators who came along to watch. Thanks to everybody who got involved and congratulations to the winning team!”

    If only we had such a charismatic and knowledgeable captain, we may not have faired so badly in the 2010 World Cup. Allez les France.
