Italia Day Eight: Semi Finals

 Despite a couple of heartbreaking losses, the Chicago Nationals advanced to the semi-finals of the San Marino Cup.  They suited up against another team from Italy and Finn was ready to go in his brand new cleats.  The boys played with tremendous heart and gave and excellent effort, but failed to bring home a victory.

 I didn't accurately anticipate how challenging it would be to navigate the emotional ups and downs brought on by tournament wins and losses during a vacation, but I know (even with a all the hard moments) that Finn and the rest of the team wouldn't trade their time on an international pitch for anything!  They finished 7th overall and I am tremendously proud of them.
