Fifty-seven talented teenagers in the region trained together in Bangkok – with nine young footballers selected to represent Asia at the Allianz Junior Football Camp in Munich. The chosen few will also get to meet some of the team’s best football players and watch them live in action at Allianz Arena – FC Bayern’s home stadium.
The young players, aged between 14-16 years old, came together for the regional camp after finishing top at their home country events in China, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Philippines, Taiwan, Thailand, Singapore and Sri Lanka.
Risinu Kudagama of Mahinda College - Galle and Senuth Jayasundara of St. Anne’s College – Kurunegala represented Sri Lanka at the Asia camp and Senuth Jayasundara was one of the nine footballers who were selected to represent Asia at the Munich Camp in August.
Allianz’s annual camp in Asia is the first to be held in the Thailand capital and included fitness workshops, footwork techniques, technical and tactical skills – ending with a tournament on the final day. The training was led by FC Bayern’s youth coach Carsten Lakies with the aim to take talented teenagers to the next level and set them up for future success.
