As the Africa Cup of Nations was going on in Gabon, a group of young and enthusiastic boys and girls in Kenya were training really hard for their own kind of football spectacle. The beautiful game went down on the 4th and 5th of February at the International School of Kenya (ISK) grounds. This is the third mini world cup where 60 teams of talented footballers in the under 6, U-7, U-9 and U-11 age groups battle it out for dominance and silverware.

The two-day tournament began at group stages and culminated in a knockout battle for the top position. The players displayed a high level of skill that left fans convinced that the future of Kenyan football is brighter now more than ever before.
