EBO Soccer Tournament

Last Saturday the 11th of May GNBBC took part in the 1st EBO Soccer tournament. 15 teams of different embassies and chambers of commerce from Europe entered this tournament which was held at Lizzy's Sports Complex in East Legon (owned by Marcel Desailly).

The GNBCC Team, which was coached by GNBCC's General Manager, was led by Team Captain Mike Jacobs of GNBCC Member JacobLawren. He organized the excellent players which included GNBCC Board Member Carl Acolatse. 

Our 1st match was a win with 1-0 over the team of the Spanish Chamber of Commerce, the 2nd match a draw against the EBO team. The 3rd match was a gigantic walkover where the GNBCC team trashed the EU Embassy team with 8-0. Our final match was a draw against the UK High Commission. 

We went through to the semi-finals where we had to play the Spanish Chamber again. We drew that game so we had to play penalty shoot out. Unfortunately, we narrowly lost this nerve breaking shoot out.

In the end, the EBO Team won the whole tournament. Next year we will win!
