Les Girondons win Le Trophé des Champions in Montréal

Trophé des Champions
Les Girondins de Bordeaux took on l’En Avant de Guingamp in the Le Trophé des Champions. Final score was 2-0 for Les Girondins in front of 34,000 Montreal soccer fanatics. This was biggest crowd in the history of Le Trophé and the first time it was held outside of France.

It was also Chloé’s first time to the Big O and her first real soccer/footie match. We took one of her best friends and they both had a blast. None of had any allegiance to either of the teams, but after hearing about the “next Zidane”, Joann Gourcuff, we were leaning towards Les Girondins. The first goal conveniently sealed our fellowship and after the second goal we were raving about like silly Frenchman.
