Vietnam. Ho Chin Minh CIP - Football Exchange Trip

It was the annual CIP and football trip again and it was no surprise every player was looking forward to it. We toured war museums and visited two orphanages before playing the Arsenal Soccer School Vietnam. Our first team beat their senior team by 5 goals to nil after our second team took out their juniors by a similar score line. However, when we played team PVF, a youth development team where the best footballers in Ho Chi Minh are put together, our boys were made to keep their tails between their legs as we were taught a footballing lesson. The visits to the orphanage was once again the anchor programme in our team. Not only were we taught a good lesson of being humble, the living conditions in the home really bring our boys down to earth. Now, we know the differences between needs and wants.
