“FC Tacoma 253 is made up of good players”, coach Milano says, “but they don’t have too much experience at this level. The team we’re going to face is phisically and technically better and we didn’t have enough time to practice so to be in tactical tune.
Anyway, the guys are very excited and enthusiastic so I’m expecting a good game!
I hope that the Italian players will help our team making the leap and being more competitive. I also expect that they help younger players to grow up so that they could be a steady point for the Club in the future.”
Good Luck FC Tacoma 253! See you there
