Millbank gets into the World Cup spirit with Penalty Shootout Tournament
22 Jun 2018
Inspired by the World Cup in Russia, Millbank staff have started a Penalty Shootout Tournament over the coming month.
The first round of matches took place today, with scenes reminiscent of the Aston Martin vs BMW shootout we witnessed on the track of Le Mans last week.
Our players were split at random into eight teams representing countries playing in this year's World Cup.
In today's fixtures, Sean Boswell's France toppled James Leon's England in a nail-biting sudden death tie-breaker, while Portugal easily overcame Russia without much trouble from the 2018 host nation.
Next week it's the second half of our quarter finals, when Spain and Sweden will clash to decide who will face the winner of the day's second game - Brazil vs Germany.
Check back next week to see who comes out on top!
