3-2 victory !!

On his 13th birthday my son (with my wife) flew to Barcelona, Spain for fĂștbol/soccer games, training and exploring (more on this later). He played 4 games yesterday (2 games each at U13 and U14 levels).

The following is a photo and text message his coach sent to the parent WhatsApp group distribution list:



A proud father I am!  Great example of sports diplomacy! The international education researcher in me can't help but to think deeply about the impact this experience will have on all of those boys in that photo, Spanish boys in green & my son's team in white.
