Friendship football brings together young people from around the world in Milan

The tournament was attended by 31 teams, coming from all over the planet and with players between 12 and 14 years of age. Among those present was the team of Al-Wahda, which left behind Damascus, Syria, in search of the feast of football. A first in the competition that is unlikely to be forgotten.

The trip to Milan was not easy for the young Syrians, forced to cross the border by bus to the Lebanon, where they could fly to the Italian city. In the end, it was worth it, because the war has come to destroy his country, but his dreams are still standing.

The testimonies of young footballers are proof of that: "I am very happy to be here and show my talent to the entire world. My dream is to be a famous player in the Spanish League, in Barcelona . "

The "friendship Football" is much more than playing football, is the ideal opportunity for contact with other cultures and open the mind. To meet football legends, as the Ambassador of the project, Franz Beckenbauer or the former Real Madrid star, Míchel Salgado, this provided Ambassador of UEFA:

"It's a project that first intends to attract children to tournaments like this, keep them out of trouble. A good example is Syria, which team suffers from the war in the Middle East. At the end of the day, football is the language that we all speak, the children speak, speech and society that can join the world. Tournaments like this should play every day throughout the world so that the kids can forget the difficulties that cross. "
