Drenthe, Netherlands

23 June 2011

The Pararoos have been defeated 0-7 by host nation the Netherlands in their last group match of the 2011 Cerebral Palsy International Sports and Recreation Association (CPISRA) Football 7-A-Side World Championships.

The Pararoos settled early and seemed to knock the ball around well in the early stages of the match. The combination from Jack Williams to Ben Roche to beat two players and shoot just wide of the goal was one of the best of the match.

The Qantas Joeys have given one of the tournament favourites an almighty scare as they were edged out 0-1 by Brazil at Estadio Guadalajara in their second Group F match of the FIFA U-17 World Cup Mexico 2011.

The Qantas Joeys more than held their own against the South Americans in what was a vast improvement on Tuesday’s performance against Côte d'Ivoire, in which they ironically won. This time was the opposite as the Qantas Joeys did enough to get something from the contest, but were left with nothing to show for it.
