Barcelona 2016

Following on from successful trips to Porto and Lisbon in 2015 and 2014, the Tournament Heaven touring side based in Luxembourg returned to Spain in 2016 with the last visit back in 2013 when we travelled to Madrid. This time, it was Barcelona that caught our attention.

After numerous attempts to contact a local side, it was looking like any form of match was not going to happen. However, thankfully Fusion For Energy based in Barcelona stepped in last minute to save the day! With their own tournament in Alicante in May to prepare for, they were keen to play a test match.

A tense start to the game commenced with both sides happy to simply knock the ball around and get a feel for the conditions. The deadlock was broken on 15 minutes with a long shot from Charlie Rawnsley whose looping effort snuck in under the bar. Sylvain Nawrocki added a second with a thunderous effort which beat the keeper on the near post. A brace of goals for each side before the break and the half ended 2-4.

The sun was beaming down and it was certainly taking its toll on those players not used to the conditions or those nursing mild hangovers! The second half started and more goals were scored for both sides - most notable was a cheeky back-heal which wrong footed Frank Kintzinger in goal as F4F looked to level up the scores. Just before time, Sandro Monteiro restored a 2-goal lead for the visitors as ASL ran out 6-4 victors.

A brief awards ceremony took place before both sides retreated to the bar to lap up some well deserved beverages. Most of the side took in the Barcelona match in the evening before heading out into the city to enjoy the nightlife on offer. Overall a brilliant weekend away with old friends and priceless new friendships garnered. Many thanks to F4F captain Paula-Corina Harghel and Esther Bonilla for helping to organise the event!
