Serbian Embassy team wins DC Embassy World Cup

Washington D.C, August 11th, 2018 – Washington D.C. Department of Parks and Recreation organized a soccer tournament called “DC Embassy World Cup” that took place concurrently with the World Cup in the Russian Federation. The tournament was supported by the Embassy of the Russian Federation and Washington D.C. Mayor Ms. Muriel Bowser.

Our team, which consisted of the players from Serbian diaspora and from the Embassy of Serbia, won the first place.

Sixteen different embassies participated in this football tournament in which groups were formed in accordance with the World Cup in the Russian Federation. During the group phase, the Serbian team won two and lost one game. Nevertheless, one loss in the group phase did not prevent our team to be dominant in the playoff stage and beat Peru, Uruguay, and Brazil before reaching the finals of this prestigious tournament.

Due to the poor weather conditions, the finals were postponed a few times until finally scheduled to be played in the Jellef Recreation Center on Sunday, August 11.

In the third place game, Brazil was able to beat France and finish as third in the tournament.

In the final game, Serbian team faced Argentina. During an uncertain and exciting game, Serbia was able to win with the final score of 4-1.

The winning trophy was handed by one of the Washington D.C. officials. Other awards and recognitions were also handed during the final ceremony.

The Embassy of the Republic of Serbia would hereby like to thank and congratulate all the players who contributed to this enormous success. With that being said, the Embassy would also like to thank Serbian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Football Association of Serbia for providing national jerseys for the Serbian team.
