Copa Amsterdam - U19's Tournament

Recommended Posts

Over the weekend Chelsea took an U19's team to Holland to compete in the Copa Amsterdam. Chelsea were put in a group with Ajax, FCNH and Chivas Guadalajara, playing each team 1 time and then a game to decide where to finish overall.

Chelsea's first game was against Ajax which we lost 2 - 0. Then we played FCNH in which we drew 2 - 2. And in our final game we drew 1 - 1 with Chivas Guadalajara. This meant we played Real Madrid for 5th/6th position and we lost 3 - 0.

The final rankings were:

1. AZ Alkmaar

2. AFC Ajax

3. Rosenborg BK

4. Chivas Guadalajara

5. Real Madrid CF

6. Chelsea FC

7. Watford FC

8. FC Amsterdam

For an U19's tournament we seem to have taken a young squad out there. But it is still dissapointing. Would very much like to see us improve results-wise next season at youth and reserve level. Winning breeds confidence.

that last game against madrid, had we won that would have looked a whole lot credible.. madrid has some fine youngsters.. not that one result proves anything, but it's just a huge reassurance..

A lot depends on the ages of the players the other teams put out. It is an U19's tournament and we fielded quite a few players who are under 18 still and some who have played for the U16's this season.
