Luke's world class kids' soccer coach

Luke's world class kids' soccer coach

Luke is blessed to have gotten connected with Football Club Skupi. Coach Bedri Saliu (pictured right), is a local legend. Every year he takes his 12 year olds to Norway to particpate in the largest youth soccer tournament in the world. In fact, this competition is billed as the World Cup of youth soccer. Last year Skupi took third place; three years ago they beat a team from Sao Paolo to win the number one place in the world for their age. Luke is about to turn to turn nine, so if he sticks with it a couple more years, he has the chance to play on a truly world class team. (Pictured left is assistant coach Meriton.)
