This afternoon, the rain held off long enough for us to play our final afternoon of both competitions and we witnessed some amazing matches!
Firstly, we played the semi-finals from the Key Stage 2 competition: Czech Republic v Hungary and then Spain v Switzerland. Both matches displayed real end-to-end excitement but both finished 0-0 which meant a penalty shoot-out in each match. Czech Republic beat Hungary on sudden death penalties after the main shoot-out finished 1-1 and then Spain defeated Switzerland 3-1 in their penalty shoot-out.
Secondly, in the Reception and Key Stage 1 final, the match finished Wales 2 Republic of Ireland 0.
Then, in the Key Stage 2 competition, Hungary prevailed in the 3rd place play-off match, beating Switzerland 2-0.
Lastly, the Key Stage 2 final between Czech Republic and Spain looked like it was heading for a 0-0 finish and a penalty shoot-out but then up popped Reece from Year 5 who scored the decisive goal and the match finished 1-0 to the Czech Republic.
Well done to all children involved over the past couple of weeks of competition. In total, 222 children have played a total of 102 matches in 48 different teams and everybody has tried really hard.
