the 56 Coppa Carnevale world youth tournament is being played in Viareggio, Italy from February 9-23. Maccabi Haifa's youth team was invited. Last year they also played and made it to the 1/4 finals. The tournament includes 40 youth teams from Italy and many other countries divided into 10 groups of 4 teams. In their first game Haifa drew 2-2 with Milan's youth team. The site is in Italian but you should be able to understand. Here is the home site for the tournament:

Okay I found something on it. Actually Elad Zachko is a midfielder for Maccabi Haifa who was on loan to the youth team. In the game against Milan he scored both goals to give Haifa a 2-0 lead in the first half. Later though according to the Haifa official site, the referee was a bit tough on Haifa and Zachko got 2 yellow cards. So he now has a one game suspension and apparently can not play Friday against Lazio.

Maccabi Haifa- Catanzaro (Italy) 4-3!! What a game this was. Haifa in their second game won 4-3 despite being behind 3-1 in the 83 minute. They scored 3 goals in the last 7 minutes including the winner on a penalty kick right at the end. Here is a description from the official site:

Here are standings after 2 games (Haifa are in group 6):

Now Haifa need at least a draw in a very difficult last game against Lazio to advance to the next round.

This is exceptionally amazing.

It shows that Isreal, no matter what the circumstances are are investing heavily in there Youth System. To beat teams like Lazio and tie AC Milan is exceptional.


In the words of Capre Nocrem "WOOOOOOHOOO"

Good luck to our boys next round?

Anyone know who there playing next round?
