A dream come true for Kuwaiti kids

Roger Bogunyà (enviat especial)

More than 50 Kuwaiti children had their dreams come true on Monday morning when they met and posed for photos with the Barça players.

The players and children met in the same room that what used for Sunday’s pre-match press conference with Laporta, Guardiola, Henry and Ibrahimovic. The only players missing were Messi, Xavi, Iniesta and Alves, who have to be in Zurich on Monday afternoon.

Photos with the kids

The ceremony started at 13.05 and lasted for 15 minutes. The players posed with sick children and then the winners of a competition for tickets for this afternoon’s friendly between Kazma v Barça.

"The children have fun"

The school’s technical director, the Catalan Josep Balada, gave us the details: “We do exactly the same exercises as in Barcelona – always with the ball. The children have fun”. That’s one of the reasons the school has as many as 350 children, although Balada admitted that the Barça name was enough to attract many children. And now they’re officially the best team in the World, even more so.
