An under 11 football team made it to one of the top 12 teams in the South East in a worldwide cup.

The Barking and Dagenham team battled it out at London Marathon Playing Fields in Greenwich to win a place in the ESFA Danone Nations Cup Finals.

The boys played an astounding game and although they did not qualify for a place in the finals, they were congratulated for getting so far.

The Danone Nations Cup is a global tournament with over 2,500,000 boys and girls involved worldwide.

Now in its fourteenth year, the world final will come to London for the very first time in September.

The Cup is partnered with and coordinated by the English Schools Football Association, part of the FA.
