Defending their team title as champions of the Consular Soccer Tournament, Team Germany won against the Netherlands Team in the final match on Thursday, June 14th.
Organized by swissnex of Boston, the 4th Annual Consular Soccer Tournament hosted teams from France, the Netherlands, Germany, Israel, and Switzerland to compete against each other in 12-minute games at the Boston Athletic Club.
