Triglav takes on the giants: the tournament was too much for the promising Kranj players, but they sold their skin dearly against Arsenal and Barcelona
The Madrid Football Cup, a strong international tournament for players in the U-14 age group, concluded a few days ago in Spain. The tournament in Madrid was attended by a number of European giants, who were also accompanied by a club from Slovenia. Slovenian colours defended by the underage Triglav; for the Kranjčani, a really strong tournament was a bit too much for them, but they can still boast that they stood up well against two prominent European clubs.
Triglav’s opening game was against Arsenal, which they lost 1:3. In the second round, the opponent was Barcelona. The Gorenjska team also lost the other three matches: they were beaten 3-0 by Crossfire Premier, a club from the United States that trains young footballers, 3-0 by RFS from Latvia, 3-0 by RFS from Latvia and 1-0 by Lidingo from Sweden. The fact that Barcelona and Crossfire Premier were in the final shows how strong Triglav’s group was. The Catalans won 3:0.
Regardless of everything, we are convinced that the Kranjčani in Madrid, where they also performed Atletico Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain, Chelsea, Benfica, Real Madrid, Inter Milan and others, they have had an experience they will never forget, but above all, they have gained invaluable experience that will help the young boys in their football careers.
