We checked into Edinburgh Airport early for our flight to Paphos. The flight was 5 hours long and we eventually arrived at our hotel around 5pm. The rest of the day was recovery as everyone was tired from the long flight.

Thursday was our first training in Cyprus with the session focused on preparing for our first game against Kosovo.
Day 4 – Friday 26th October
The match day was finally here, and , in the morning, I found out I was starting the game and making my Under-17s European Qualification debut. The game was being played at 3pm in 26-degree heat with a nice breeze. The game was tough, but we played well and got a deserved 2-1 victory. Our next game is on Monday (29th October) against Cyprus.
