Day 4: Match vs. VV Schaarn and Standard Liege Game
::by Providence Mbabazi
On Sunday August 4th 2013, it was our 4th day in Europe. We woke up early to do some running and stretching to strengthen up our bodies, as most of us were tired from the game the night before.
After we had breakfast and soon after we headed to the game and faced a great Division three team in Netherlands called Schaarn. It was a very hot day, so we played three thirty minute periods. We worked hard for our first 30 minutes and it proved to be good competition. The second half however, was not as good as the first. We turned things around in the third, finishing strong by giving up no goals.
After the game we came back to the hotel, showered and relaxed for a little before diner. After dinner we headed to Liege, Belgium to watch Standard de Liege game of the Jupiler league (Belgium D1 league) against Lierse. The atmosphere at the game was intense. The game finished 3-0 in favor of the home team. The game was nice and we had fun in Liege before we came back to the hotel for the night.
