Journalists take on a challenge on the football pitch
Dressed as the Dutch 'Oranjes,' the HDN team's total football might as well have impressed a bunch people should their rivals wouldn't have been in a lucky day.The Hürriyet Daily News played in a 7-a-side friendly football competition between media organizations hosted by Adidas on June 7 in Istanbul. Our readers will be pleased to know that their leading news source for Turkey and the region fought with bravery against their rivals, bidding farewell to the tournament in the first round in a dignified manner only after displaying a furious hunger for victory.
Our editors have chosen to omit the final score in order to highlight that they consider the ultimate goal of sporting events as enjoying fair play rather than getting to know the taste of victory - which is reportedly 'very sweet.'
Doğan TV won the tournament, beating Meltem TV in the final.
