Bologna FC wins 10th International Helvetia U16 Cup
The Sunday was dominated by the final matches. Both semi-finals of the Helvetia U16 Cup were decided after a penalty shoot-out after the regular playing time. Bologna FC and Benfica Lisbon stayed cooler and reached the final.
The final was very attractive and similarly balanced to the semi-finals. Since no goals were scored in the ten minute overtime, the penalty shootout had to decide again. There, the goalkeeper from Bologna saved even more than in the semi-finals and secured the tournament victory for the Italians.
For the first time in the history of the Helvetia U16 Cup, an Italian team won the tournament. FC St. Gallen won the match for 3rd place against Stade Rennais from France 2:0 and was, therefore, the best Swiss team.
FC Lugano could not improve in the last game and lost against FC Aarau narrowly with 1:2.
