 Enthusiasm Great in Peruvian Girls Team

It has without a doubt been an interesting start to Dana Cup for Santisimo Nombre de Jesus - G17- the girls from Peru. First, off the pitch, when they were invited to meet the mayor of Hjørring, Arne Boelt, in the old town hall and, then, on the football field winning 2-0 against Töreboda IK from Sweden.

'We met the mayor, he was a very nice person, and we were all very excited meeting him and taking part in Dana Cup on the whole,' a young player said.

The girls come from a large Catholic school in Peru, where they, via the school's intensive sports curriculum, can get a physical education, for instance, by playing tennis, volleyball, athletics and, obviously, football.

The results so far mean that Santisimo Nombre de Jesus has good prospects of qualifying for the A-finals before the last group match.
