Rural School in China's Anhui Grabs Inter Milan's Attention

Pub Date:18-06-15 16:04 Source:www.cnanhui.org

Poor as it is, a rural school in East China’s Anhui province has caught the attention of Football Club Inernazionale Milano, commonly known as Inter Milan, the Paper.cn reports.

The professional Italian football club visited the Sanyi School in Sanyi village in the northern city of Fuyang, in April. They spoke highly of its remarkable achievements in playing soccer, and planned to offer a helping hand. The club will probably send its professional coaches to the school in October. “Kicking the ball to Milan” is becoming a popular slogan among football-loving kids here.

Stories behind the school’s rise to stardom are more fascinating.

In 2015, it was listed among China’s first soccer-featuring schools.

In 2016, it won a silver at a football competition between Anhui and its neighbouring Jiangsu province.

In 2017, it finished third at the Anhui-division preliminary of a football match jointly launched by Suning Group and the Amity Foundation, and took the fourth in the final.

Those results are hard won as the rural school is in poor condition.

Wang Xia, who built the soccer team largely made up of left-behind children and orphans, had been the only PE teacher at this school before this year.

Thanks to her dedication, this remote rural school is well known far and wide for soccer.

Under her influence, more and more local children got to know and took to soccer. They dubbed her “Soccer Mother”.

More than 500 left-behind children in the village used to be late for school and idle about after school. Things has changed. They play soccer with a dream in the heart.
