Action from the group match between Serbia and France

On Thursday evening 35 Year 7 students, representing 6 nations, took to the field to compete in the Year 7 World Cup five-a-side competition.

Upon the conclusion of the group stages Serbia, Nigeria, England and Denmark competed for a place in the final. A 2-0 victory for Serbia and a resounding 4-0 victory for England set up an exciting final between the teams who finished first and second in the group stages.

The final was decided by penalties.

The final was a cagey affair and ended 0-0, extra-time was needed. Serbia took the lead after a VAR penalty controversy but England equalised immediately with a well worked goal from the restart. Penalties were needed to separate the two teams,  Serbia eventually coming out on top, winning 3-1. The students opted to donate the £30 raised to the British Heart Foundation.  

Well done to all the students who competed.
