INSPIRING: Little known Kenyan team that beat Barcelona and Atletico Madrid!

A football academy in Nairobi known as Acakoro Football Academy has shown its skills to the world by beating Barcelona and Atletico Madrid juniors thus showcasing Kenya as a heart for future talents.

The team competes in the Donauauen Cup every year.

The tournament is said to be one of the toughest junior championships in Europe.

It is in this tournament that Acakoro FC thrashed Barcelona FC and Atletico Madrid FC to win the cup both last year (2017) and the year before (2016).

Located in the outskirts of Nairobi, Korogocho Slums, Acakoro has one of the modest training grounds in Kenya. The academy draws their players from slum areas, many of whom come from families affected by HIV and those who live in poverty.
