Super Eagles FC from Lower Crossroads were crowned winners of the inaugural Rainbow Soccer Tournament at Vuyiseka Sports Complex on Saturday after narrowly beating Red Lions FC, also from Lower Crossroads, by two goals to one. The team walked away with the R5000.00 prize money and the trophy.Eagles coach Lunga Booi said they did not get enough time to prepare for the tournament, as “during training, we could only salvage about eight players, until the start of the tournament, and we did not do well in our first two games,” he said.However, as the tournament progressed, his players started gelling and grew stronger. “As the tournament drew to the end, more and more players joined the team and going into the final, we had a full-strength squad.” Booi said they were only hoping to play in the finals, and not thinking about winning the tournament, because they were the under-dogs, with no one giving them a chance.He is, however, happy with his players’ commitment and character, which saw them lifting the trophy, he said.Tournament organiser Brian Matiwane said they had challenges going into the tournament. He said it was the first of its kind but they are hoping to host it as an annual event. He said overall, it was a good tournament, with teams playing beautiful football.
