The Finals scoreboard for Manila World Cup 2008. Africa wins the cup two years in a row,
while Spain earns a deserving spot in 2nd place.
It was that time of year again, Mini World Cup time! A two-day football (soccer) event that's been in our family tradition for almost two decades now I think. Many countries are represented by their own nationals, with some inevitable imports, in a friendly and exciting tournament at the Nomad Sports Club. Although we have friends in other teams (such as Philippines and USA) it is Spain we come to root for because it's made up of friends and some relatives and was always my brother's team .
The games are always so much fun regardless of outcome. The days end with drinks, and the party is kicked up a notch at the end of the 2nd day after the awarding ceremonies when national boundaries are cast aside. And while our team didn't make it to first place (Africa truly deserved that honor!), they played with all their might and had a blast doing it. And at the end of the day, isn't that all that matters? :)
