There is no better way to learn to play football in Spain than by competing. It is the only way to improve and develop as a footballer. The footballers who are part of the SIA Academy international academy were able to play against another great team like Safor CF..
The friendly match was held at CF Gandia’s facilities and served to apply what has been learnt over the last few weeks at the SIA Center. Soccer Inter-Action came out on top. The result is the least important thing. The best thing is the progress made by the players who live together at SIA Academy day after day.
How was the SIA Academy – Safor CF?
The friendly match between SIA Academy and Safor CF was an example of fight and pace. The international players of both teams demonstrated their strengths and weaknesses over the course of the match. Soccer Inter-Action managed possession and Safor CF waited for their chances in defence.
Ownership of SIA Academy
The players of the SIA Academy international team had a good match. They were able to develop what they learned at the Soccer Inter-Action high performance centre. The ball handling philosophy is a clear identity of SIA with which the footballers develop competitively in a better way.
This domination of the ball was later reflected in the final result. The SIA Academy players wanted to and were able to. A friendly that aroused the interest of several scouts from clubs in the Gandía area, where there are historical entities playing in Spanish national football.
The SIA Academy international team does not compete in federated leagues. The players themselves play with the school teams, but it is in these friendly matches that they enjoy being teammates on the pitch for a match. The Soccer Inter-Action team gets into a rhythm by playing these matches.
In just two months, SIA Academy has played against many teams. First, FC Nordsjaelland, a team from the Danish first division. Also Next Academy, Spain Rush-SPF, Sudeva and Safor CF. In addition to other matches between the international academy team and other teams from the school.
What is Safor CF?
The victory against the Safor CF team is a deserved one. For the good work done by the young international players of SIA Academy and for the high level shown by last week’s opponent. To know what the feat is, you have to know what Safor CF is, where they train and who they are made up of.
Safor CF is a club from the Valencian region of La Safor, bordering the province of Alicante. It welcomes international players from the large towns in the area. It trains and competes in the facilities of CF Gandia, a reference club in the region. Its first team squad is mainly made up of Brazilian players.
Safor CF was founded in 2018 to provide an opportunity for Brazilian people living in the area to play football. Recently they created several grassroots football teams to accommodate young footballers from all over the world. In this way, it becomes an international entity.
Differences between SIA Academy and Safor CF
Safor CF is a very different club to SIA Academy. The Brazilians act as a regular football team, without their own facilities, accommodation or other services such as a nutritionist or fitness trainer. This is something that the Soccer Inter-Action team offers at its facilities in Enguera.
El Safor also does not have the strength of the SIA Academy. The international team of Soccer Inter-Action has great opportunities to showcase its players in elite football, such as participating in the Villarreal Yellow Cup. Also playing against top European teams.
