The Mexican stadium of Hidalgo vibrated with the presence of more than 20,000 children who came to watch the match between the Under-20 teams of the Tuzos of Pachuca and the Ansan Hallelujah FC team from South Korea.



From early on, the children accompanied by their parents enjoyed the friendly match called Football with values”.



The families were thrilled with the moves of the young players, who played at a high level on the court. The famous “Ola” made by the fans was also present during the match at the home of the Tuzos, showing the hubbub that characterizes the Hidalgo fans when they support their team.





The U-20 Tuzos of Pachuca won the game 3-0.



The head of the State Planning and Prospecting Unit, Laman Carranza and the South Korean Consul, Young Ju Moon, were present at the match.

The 4/14 Window is a global Christian mission movement focused on evangelizing children between 4 and 14 years old.



It focuses on children at that age because they “are usually the most open and receptive social group to the development of their spiritual life”.
