“I will give everything to come out with the victory against the West team. I don't want to lose like last year, ”insists the one who will play as a midfielder.
“I can't wait to play at the Montreal Alouettes stadium. It will be the first time for me, ”he adds.
The young athlete from Sainte-Dorothée is officially one of the 11 players of the Eastern Team, which brings together the best football fans between 10 and 12 years old from Quebec and Ontario.
Chosen among 5000 players, he was able to go through all the stages of the various selection camps to find himself in the formation of the East.
“It's not a big surprise to have been selected. I was confident, because I dominated in all facets of the game, ”humbly mentions the former Delta color-bearer.
The winning team will represent Canada at the international final of the Nations Cup scheduled for the fall in Morocco.
Jules-Anthony would love to show them his talent by playing against some of the best soccer teams from the 32 participating countries.
“I will give my all to represent Canada in Morocco. I want to know the best game of my career. I hope to beat the West, ”concludes the sixth grade student at Saint-François Elementary School.
