Blog: Tim's Roundup

That's All, Folks

We certainly finished on a high today!
Great games by all the teams in the final.
England takes the big trophy on the Men's side, and Portugal on the Women's.

Both matches were quality displays of passing, positioning, footwork, finishing and goal keeping.

We streamed the finals live on our website, with play-by-play and colour commentary.
You'll be able to see that archived on the site, so if you missed it...not to worry.
That video and the highlight reel will be posted tomorrow, because we're having some technical issues tonight.

I want to say a big thank you to everyone involved in the tournament this year...the players, coaches, refs, organizers, fans, volunteers, soccer centre staff, and the police. You are a great group of Edmontonians, and I really appreciate that you welcomed me with such kindness and respect.
 
I'd also like to thank all the behind-the-scenes people here at CBC, who do such fantastic work to make this project happen.

The camera guys filming all your goals. The editors putting together the highlight reels.
Our great journalism students, who must have extremely sore thumbs from all that tweeting!
All our technical staff, who worked all kinds of magic throughout the project. Our guys at the night desk who plugged in the scores. Our communications folks, who set up the display at the soccer centre and took questions. And, last but not least, the producer of this project, Mark Harvey. He did all the planning and took care of any hiccups along the way...he also had to deal with me:)
 
So, one more time...thank you to everyone who makes this tournament a success.
I'll see you on the pitch this summer. 
All the best,
 
Tim
