America Belo Horizonte were crowned winners of the sixth Feyenoord International Youth Tournament in the Kuip Sunday after an marathon final. The Brazilian’s war of attrition with PSV went to the twenty-second penalty after the sides finished goalless after extra time. Elsewhere, Vitesse Arnhem mauled Real Madrid 3-0 in the third-place playoff, while Feyenoord finished out of the medals in sixth, but they did boast the player of the tournament: Jordan Opuku.

Although the final never lived up to expectations America, Belo Horizonte deserved their victory. The Brazilians showed they had the biggest appetite all through the tournament. That said, Vagner’s team looked to have bitten off more than they could chew in the final against a rock-solid PSV, and the game was one of few goalmouth opportunities. Nil-nil at the end of normal time, the teams were unable to make the breakthrough in extra time either, so it all came down to penalties. Both sides appeared up for it as the first twenty-two attempts ended up in the back of the net. The players started on a second round and first to show his nerves was PSV’s Jasar Takak, who put his kick wide of the target. In reply, up stepped Michel to stroke the ball home to secure the trophy and send his team into samba mode.
