Dubai, UAE – July 15, 2019:  du LaLiga High Performance Center (HPC) announced today that its U14 teams have won the IberCup, the top international youth football tournament, which took place this year in Spain between July 9-13. 

The IberCup brought together the world's strongest academies from across Europe, North and South America, Asia and Africa, providing youth the opportunity to face-off in a highly competitive 11-aside tournament. 

This year witnessed the participation of top teams from Brazil, Spain, France, Portugal, Sweden, United States, Canada, Ukraine, Egypt, Morocco and Hungary, with du LaLiga HPC proving their might and bringing home the gold trophy to the UAE.  

With an undefeated winning streak throughout the tournament, du LaLiga HPC beat Canada's Oakridges Knights Academy 2-0 in the Finals. Both goals were scored by Man of the Match Nicolo Cugilanich, who netted a record 12 goals throughout the tournament. 

Commenting on the results, du LaLiga HPC U14 Coach Marcos Marin Gonzalez said: “We are incredibly proud of the du LaLiga HPC team. Our young players have proved that they can compete against the best academies in the world. We are grateful for the support of du in making such opportunities possible for talented young players to shine internationally.”

As the du LaLiga U14 team returns home, the U15, U16 and U17 teams are gearing up for travel to the annual LaLiga Scouting Camp in Marbella, Spain on August 15 where they will play competitive matches against LaLiga's finest youth teams, including Real Betis, Sevilla, Malaga, under the watchful eyes of LaLiga scouts looking to uncover the next football star.
