U16 reach the last four!

Thanks to an emphatic 5-0 win over Zenit St. Petersburg, the U16 team reached the semi-finals of the Alkass International Cup in Doha.

Following a 3-0 win against Kashiwa Reysol and a 2-2 draw with Barcelona in the group stage, the young Parisians scored a big success against their Russian opponents to move into the last four.

Ilyes Housni picked out the top corner for the opener (1-0, 13'), and then teed up Wilson Odobert, who headed home the second in the dying embers of the first half (2-0, 45+7').


Ismael Gharbi added number three just before the hour mark (3-0, 58'). Housni claimed his second of the game (4-0, 85') before making it hat-trick by putting the finishing touch to a fine team move (5-0, 88').

The Rouge-et-Bleu will now meet Inter Milan, who beat Aspire Academy 1-0, on 22 February at 19.15 local time.
