Today the SCG Muangthong United U12 Academy team played out a 5-1 Victory over OAZ Academy in a friendly match at the Muangthong United practice facility.
The MAN-OF-THE-MATCH was captain "Boom", however the squad showed overall strong talent and abilitity. Their skill at controlling the ball, making quick one touch passes, and keeping posession made all the difference in today's match.
Coach CARLOS SANCHEZ RUBIO commented that today's friendly was a chance for him to look at some new players to join the U12 Academy Team. Today's match consisted of 10 players who have already signed contracts, and another 7 that are being considered. Some of the players were as young as 10 years old, and the MTUTD Academy in the future may consider adding a U11 team.
Rubio used a 4-3-3 formation in today's match, and stressed to the team the importance of keeping the ball, and to look for the pass forward, but if not, turn around and play the ball back to a defender or even the keeper.
