CASA GRANDE, Ariz. – Nothing could separate Real Salt Lake U-17 and Stoke City U-17, as they faced each other for the second time in six days in the championship match of the 2013-14 Generation Adidas Final Round in Dallas, Texas.
In group play on April 15, Real Salt Lake bested Stoke City on penalty kicks, and in the championship match on Sunday it was Stoke City’s turn to exact some revenge, as they defeated RSL on penalty kicks 3-2.
Overall, RSL showed very well during the 2013-14 Generation Adidas Cup. Sebastian Saucedo was awarded the Golden Ball as the tournament’s best player and the Golden Boot as its leading scorer.
