Young Blues Finish Runners-Up

Scholars beaten in final of Future Champions Tournament.

Young Blues Finish Runners-Up

Everton’s Under-16s finished runners-up in the Future Champions Tournament in South Africa after suffering penalty shootout heartbreak in the final against Club Tijuana on Saturday morning.

The scholars, led by Academy chief Alan Irvine, had played out a 1-1 draw with their Mexican opponents before losing 4-3 on spot-kicks.

Everton had taken a 1-0 advantage into half-time thanks to Callum Connolly before being pegged back by Flores’ equaliser.

The annual Future Champions event was setup in 2009 and sees clubs from all over Europe compete against various South African teams.

As well as youth sides from the host nation, Everton were joined in the tournament by representative sides of Atletico Mineiro from Brazil and Sporting Lisbon of Portugal.

The young Blues' achievement was all the more impressive as they were an Under-16 team playing in an Under-17 competition.
