Yesterday, as a warm-up to the fast advancing World Cup, Burke held its first annual El Mundialito Soccer Championship 2010. As you can see from the photos below and at BurkePix, there were several teams wearing the colors of powerful soccer nations, including Brazil, France, Netherlands and Lichtenschlang. You had players of all grades, sizes and ages (including one who’s age was – as Jack Benny said – 39).
The current results and standings are posted below. The Playoffs, featuring Brazil v Netherlands and Ivory Coast v Madagascar, will be held next week. The Burke Athletic Regional Football Society Commissioner, Chris Richardson, will announce the day/time shortly.
