FC Barcelona U14 B team win LaLiga Promises tournament
The youngsters coached by Sergi Milà overcome Valencia 4-3 in a scintillating final The victory comes after a 2-0 semi-final win also on Tuesday over Villarreal
The FC Barcelona U14B side are the champions of the LaLiga Promises tournament which took place in Miami, USA after a 2-0 win over Villarreal in the semi-final and a spectacular 4-3 victory over Valencia in the final. Moriba Kourouma was the star of the show with two goals in each match to help Sergi Milà’s team to success in the tournament which was played over three days in Florida.
The final against Valencia was a thrilling affair with Barça edging it in a seven goal thriller. Moriba Kourouma, fresh from his brace in the semi-final against Villarreal, opened the scoring. His second was an example of pure power - a shot from outside the box that was always destined for the back of the net. Valencia, to their credit, never gave up and Cristian Valera’s goal guaranteed emotion until the final minutes. However, Barça held on for the win and Sergi Milà’s side return with the trophy after victory in the prestigious youth football tournament.
