As part of the session, the three Hyundai A-League stars took on all 30 youngsters in a short match on a full-sized pitch.
And it was the locals who came out on top, winning 3-1.
“It was 30 against three which is something a bit different but the kids really enjoyed it,” Sky Blues defender McGowan told Sydney FC’s official website.
“But I think we probably maybe enjoyed it more than the kids did.”
While we’re sure the Sky Blues trio will put in a bit more effort against the French champions on Tuesday night, let’s hope it’s not an omen for the result at the Suzhou Olympic Sports Centre.
