Football Match

IGS Selection Season Opener
Under the pouring Saigon rain, the IGS football team faced their first challenge, their first test match of the 23/24 season. In an exciting encounter, our team faced the Australian International School (AIS) and provided the spectators with a true football spectacle.
In a high-level game, AIS managed to take the lead late in the second half. The IGS Selection then pushed vigorously for the equalizer, leaving AIS no room to breathe, but unfortunately missing numerous opportunities to score. In the last second of the game, team captain Minh scored the longed-for equalizer. The game ultimately ended in a 1-1 draw.
Head coach, Nicolas Gelinek, emphasizes that our young team has improved significantly and is now able to face strong international school opponents. The next game will take place next Sunday, October 1st.
