Young players have their sights on Brazil

Young footballers from Corby are celebrating after reaching the regional finals of the Danone Nations Cup, the world’s biggest football tournament for 10 to 12-year-olds.

The under-11s side is just two stages away from a dream trip to Brazil and to representing England in the Danone Nations Cup world final.

Corby PSFA progressed from the county knockout rounds of the tournament this month and will now compete in the regional finals at Nottingham University in March.

Regional winners will go on to compete in a national final where the winners will earn a place in the world finals in Brazil in October.
