The Champions Youth Cup Final!

by Deddy Andaka on August 18, 2007

The Champions Youth Cup uda mencapai babak final yang akan mempertemukan antara Juventus vs Manchester United (19/8/2007). Kedua tim akan saling berhadapan setelah masing-masing mengalahkan lawannya di semifinal, Manchester vs Flamengo dan Juventus vs AC Milan dengan score yang sama, 2-1.

Rasanya unik juga melihat tim-tim dengan nama besar namun dengan pemain-pemain mudanya saling beradu. Dan aku sebagai seorang Juventini cukup puas juga melihat the next punggawa-punggawa Juventus beraksi. Dan aku menilai ada 4 pemain yang menonjol di tim muda Juventus.
1. Giorgio Merlano
2. Ayub Daud
3. Simone Esposito
4. Cristian Pasquato as the next Del Piero
Mudah-mudahan besok Juve menang dah. FORZA JUVE!

Honourable second place for the Youth Team

The crowning glory was not to be. The Youth team lost the final against Manchester United by just one goal and had to “make do” with second place in the Champions Youth Cup in Malaysia. The last match in Kuala Lumpur ended 1-0, with Brandy – a player surely destined for great things – scoring a blinder.

The decisive goal came in the middle of the second half of a very balanced match between two teams who equalled one another. In fact the best chance up to that point had been for the Bianconeri, when Daud hit the crossbar in the first half. In the final minutes, Chiarenza’s boys very generously went all-out in attack, but they had no luck.

In the end Juventus came second behind Man Utd and in front of Flamengo and AC Milan, and had the best defence of the tournament (they conceded only two goals in six matches). The Roberto Bettega Trophy award for the tournament’s top scorer went to AC Milan’s Pierre Aubameyang.
The Black-and-whites return to Italy with a prestigious placing and with many good omens for the season about to commence, in particular for the first official game, the Super Cup against Internazionale (who they beat in the quarter finals in Malaysia), scheduled for the end of September.

Gapapa dah… maju terus Juve Jr!
