Men's & Women's teams end Homeless World Cup with victories

After a week of competition in Cardiff, both Men's and Women's teams ended on a high at the Homeless World Cup. 

The Men's team recorded a 4-0 win in their 5th and 6th place playoff match in the Dragon's Cup section (level 4 out of 6) against England whereas the Women overcame SFU on penalties to finish 7th out of 8 in the Celtic Cup section (level 2 of 2)

It has been an up and down week in terms of results for both teams with the Women finishing bottom of their group but recorded credible wins against Sweden, SFU and were narrowly defeat by Belgium in their semi final placement match.

The Men's team were unfortunate not to be playing for first place in the Dragon Cups section after a narrow 7-6 defeat to Germany before beating South Korea and England to fifth place.
