MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – An international soccer team, that’s overcome incredible odds, gets to bring home some hardware for a job well done.

A team called “Sanneh Foundation’s Haitian Initiative,” composed of young athletes from Haiti, played their way into the championship game at the Schwann’s USA Cup Saturday night. They were the runner’s up.

The team was able to travel from the Caribbean with the help of retired soccer pro Tony Sanneh, who’s originally from Minnesota.

Fifteen-thousand players from around the world came to the week-long soccer tournament in Blaine.
