MILAN – A tournament created 15 years ago, with 317 teams from eight different countries taking part and the aim of 500 in the next edition: the competition for boys born between 1997 and 2005 opened yesterday at Accademia Inter in via Cilea 51. The guests of honour, showing just what an important event it is, were Mateo Kovacic, Andrea Ranocchia, Hernanes, Fredy Guarin and Beppe Baresi. They were applauded by everyone there, and took time to sign autographs and pose for photos with the young footballers. It really made for a party atmosphere.
It starts today and ends on Sunday: let the games begin!
