Iker Casillas gave a football clinic at the BBVA Compass Stadium in Houston, Texas. He also used the event to present a charitable project from the Realmadrid Foundation and BBVA Compass that aims to help those in need through sport, promoting values such as hard work, team effort and fair play in the Risk and Eliot academies, located in Houston districts affected by poverty. The event was highly anticipated, with more than 100 children gathering at the stadium that is home to MSL side Houston Dynamo.
"This is a fantastic programme to improve kids' education," said the Real Madrid captain, "Those who stand out will receive scholarships. I know there is a great football fan base in Houston and I am delighted to be here with the Realmadrid Foundation and Estudios Internacionales."
