Kaya Futbol Club (FC) Academy’s Under-12 team has raced to a 2-0 start at the Gothia Cup in China.

Kaya recorded a convincing 12-0 victory against Beijing’s Sunny Zone team on Monday, and followed it up with a 2-0 beating of Shanxi’s FC Eagle Brothers.

“We want to show not only China but the rest of the world that we can play good football in the Philippines,” Coach Thomas Pfyl said in a statement on Tuesday.
