Bree Primary School made their Milo Barcelona Tour more entertaining when they walloped FC Barcelona juniors 7-0 in their own back yard.

On their arrival on Saturday they toured the city of Barcelona and in the evening drove to Camp Nou stadium to watch a La Liga match between FC Barcelona and Racing Santander that ended in a 1-all draw.

On Sunday morning they visited FC Barcelona's museum where their programme was partially interrupted when they opted to attend the club's training session through the assistance of striker Samuel Eto'o.

The reigning Milo champions played against Barca juniors later that day, thrashing them 7-0. The South Africans showed no respect for their Spanish counterparts, completely dictating terms.

Njabulo Magubane opened the scoring in the 10th minute and Mbongiseni Mazibuko scored two minutes later.

Captain Owen Mngadi increased the score to 3-0 in the 18th minute, with Nthandokuhle Maphumulo scoring the last goal of the first half a minute later.

The Spanish showed no improvement in the second stanza as they allowed the South Africans to continue their domination.

Maphumulo completed his brace in the 27th minute before Nhlakanipho Ntuli added his name on the score sheet in the 30th minute and completed his brace 10 minutes later.

Bree's tour ended on Monday when they visited the Olympic stadium and other major buildings, the beach and took a cable car ride.

Mandla Mazibuko, the president of the South African Schools Football Association commended the boys for a job well done and thanked Nestlé Milo for sponsoring the tour.
