Over the past 4 weeks the pupils from 3rd-6th Class have been taking part in a World Cup style competition in school. The competition is being run with the help of Ian Haill, FAI as part of an intercultural programme.
Friday provided us with some outstanding and exciting football matches. With the competition in full swing, next week will see the final group stage matches before the winner of each group goes head to head in the semi-finals in week 5!
In Group 1, Ireland edged out Benin to record a second win in the competition. Meanwhile, Lithuania were clinical in their win over Romania hitting the net 3 times. As a result, Lithuania, with the superior goal difference lead the group, with Ireland in second. Romania and Benin need a win this Friday if there to stand any chance of taking the top spot and a place in the semi- finals.
