Who is ready for some World Cup soccer? The under 13 Global Premiere Soccer in Buffalo is. The team is fresh off their second state title in as many years and come the next couple of weeks, most on this team will be glued to their TVs.

With The US Men's team eliminated, France, Spain, Brazil and Germany are the favorites for these middle schoolers.

“If my kids don't say Portugal, let me know, because they won't play,” joked Diogo Gomez, the team’s coach.

Their coach moved to Buffalo from Portugal last September to coach this team. He and his players are excited for two World Cups from now, when it's in North America in 2026.
