Bronze Medal Goes to Chile

We woke up today for an Eight-o-clock breakfast, then had a short team meeting about the Chile match that we had later.

We went to the field, most of us were still disappointed about yesterday’s loss.

The game started off well, but Chile scored first goal and then scored goal after goal and we couldn’t stay in the game. Chile won 5-1, and took the Bronze medal.

We stayed and watched the final between Argentina and the USA. Argentina won 2-1. Afterwards we watched the closing ceremonies.

We returned to the hotel to get cleaned up before heading back to the field for a barbeque with all the other teams. We ate, played soccer
and exchanged jerseys for a couple of hours, then we returned to the hotel.

The whole Chilean team came over to our hotel later to exchange more jerseys on the pool deck. It was great fun negotiating when we could not speak Spanish and the Chilean’s spoke little to no English. The odd player did get thrown into the pool and the night continued on late.
