The IAFA International squad met for their fifth training camp in Limerick this weekend. Following fitness testing and coaching sessions, including a 7am strength and conditioning session on Sunday morning, the squad traveled to the Aviva Stadium to take part in an exhibition game during half-time in the FAI Junior Cup final. Roared on by a crowd of 15,000 Ireland raced into a earlier lead with a goal from James Boyle. Alan Wall added a spectacular second, while James Boyle again struck to secure a 3-0 win for the amputees. On what was an historic occasion for the IAFA, the squad were not overawed by the surroundings of the National Stadium. The IAFA would like to say a special thank you to Denis Cruise of the Junior Council for allowing us the opportunity to showcase our sport and to the players from Project Futsal and Ballymun FC who made up our opposition on the day.
