Fulham’s Under-18s attended the international Sparkasse-VGH-Cup in Germany for the sixth time earlier this month.
The tournament has been going for 26 years and hosts four international teams, eight Bundesliga teams and 16 regional teams. Over the years the tournament has seen a lot of great football and a lot of talented players, many of which became first team professionals - Manuel Neuer, Mesut Ozil, Clarence Seedorf and Patrick Kluivert to name just a few. Over the years Fulham FC has seen 11 players who featured in this tournament go on to make their first team debut.
This year we went with the youngest side the tournament has ever seen. But even with an average of 16, we stood strong in the Under-19s tournament. After finishing the first round in first spot we went up against two very experienced sides in Cologne and Austria Vienna, who went on to win the Cup.
