The Jubilee Tournament anno 2014 is now over and it’s with a big smile, we say thank you to you all. It was with an awesome start we kicked off the week when the World Cup in Brazil handed over to the World Youth Cup in Sweden the same day all teams arrived.

All the joy, splendor of color and emotions that result when so many nationalities gathered in one place is something quite unique. The pride to play for one’s club, one’s country and to share this with other teams. I hope you have made new friends, got to know yourselves and your teammates a little better and had a lot of fun.

In 40 years we have together made the Gothia Cup an international event and we look forward to keep building and developing the tournament together for many more successful years!

A big thank you to you all and welcome back next year!

Boys 18 Final:
BK Häcken – Lärje/Angered 6-4 p (1-0)
In the last final of Gothia Cup, the two local teams Häcken and Lärje/Angered met in the B18 final. Lärje/Angered started the game best and had the most opportunities to take the lead. Instead, Häcken scored 1-0 after 17 minutes. Robert Lipovac showed some great skills and went through three defenders and shot the ball in the net. Häcken played with good control, but it wasn’t going to be that easy to win the gold. Lärje/Angereds number 11, Chadly Maduka was a big threat the whole game, and with only eight minutes left of the game, he scored the equalizer. Just like a lot of other finals this day, it was going to be decided by penalty shootout. This time, BK Häcken won.
– Lovely. Feels good to win such a big tournament, says Robert Lipovac after receiving the MVP award.


Girls 17 Tipselit Trophy:

CD San Gabriel – Paris St. Germain (0 – 0) 6 – 7 pen.

It took 60 minutes of playing time and 8 rounds of penalties to separate these two teams, and ultimately it was French side Paris St. Germain who won. It was also the French who were in command for most of the game, however, San Gabriel defended well and did not offer PSG much in the way of scoring chances. Even if PSG had created more during open play, that isn’t any help when it goes to penalties. In a real nail-biter, PSG goalkeeper Chloe Ngazi struck home with her team’s eight penalty and the French team could lift the trophy. MVP of the game was Marie Katoto.
- There was such enormous pressure before that final kick, when it went in it was like an explosion of joy, said Ngazi.


Boys 17 Tipselit Trophy:
Mjällby AIF – Right to Dream 6-7 p (0-0)
In Tipselit Trophy, Swedish Mjällby faced Right to Dream from Ghana in the B17 final. The game was close, so close that the game was decided by penalty shootouts after 0-0 in full time. Right to Dream was the most aggressive and offensive team but Mjällby defended very well. Mjällby’s both goalkeepers (they changed in half time) played excellent. The penalties were good by both teams and it was in the seventh penalty round Right to Dream scored the game-winning goal after a save by their goalkeeper just before.
– Amazing. It’s our dream to win this. A big thank you to everybody, says Ameyawu Muntari.


Boys 15 Final:

J-L Juniors – TSV Havelse 2 – 2 (0 – 2) 7 – 5 after penalties

After a great comeback, Japanese side J-L Juniors won their final, beating German side TSV Havelse on penalties. THe first half can be summed up by J-L Juniors had possession – Havelse scored goals. J-L Juniors pressed the Germans back into their own half, moving the ball around skillfully. It was however Havelse who scored. First a hard free kick from Stanko Lasic and then an excellent finish from Tim Stiller made the score 2 – 0 at halftime. J-L Juniors was not deterred and kept on pressing and combining well. Miyashiro Taisei reduced the lead after 41 minutes and eight minutes later Toshiki Okazaki struck the equalizer with a brilliant shot. Havelse held on and took the game to penalties, where the Japanese ultimately prevailed, the final penalty taken by Kaito Kuwahara. The MVP of the game was Yukinari Sugawara.
- We really wanted to get back after being down by two goals, said Toshiki Okazaki afterwards. There was enormous pressure when it went to penalties but we handled it well!


Boys 16 Final:
HK 1 – Onsala BK 5-6 p (1-0)
Such a close final between the teams from Iceland and Sweden. The Icelandic team HK started the game with good energy and speed, and also scored the first goal after thirteen minutes by Dagur Torsteinsson. On a free kick, a HK player scored with a header in the penalty area. In the second half, Onsala scored the equalizer by Victor Heed on a penalty shot. After that, Onsala created more and more chances than HK, but no more goals were made before full time and the game would be decided by penalties. While there, Onsala won.
– I’m very satisfied. Everyone fight together as a team. It was a close game with a good opponent, says Marcus Jarl, who scored the game-winning goal in the penalty shootout.
And his feeling right after he decided the final?
– I can’t describe it. It’s the best feeling I’ve ever had.

In the second half the heat started being a factor and the game slowed down a bit. Millena Souares de Souza Lindvall of LB07 scored from close range after a nice pass from Josefine Svensson, making it 2 – 0.

IK Grand Bodø – Jitex BK 0-2 (0-0)

The first half ended 0-0, but in the second half Jitex scored twice. Even if Grand created the most in the first half, it was the two goals from Jitex in the second that decided the game.

Vaksala SK – Göteborgs DFF 2 – 1 (1 – 0)

In a very exciting and well-played final, Swedish side Vaksala SK won against Göteborgs DFF (Sweden) with a late score from Klara Molin.
The game started off at a high pace where both teams created chances to score. In the eleventh minute Elin Åkerman, who also won the MVP award, fired home from inside the box, giving her team the lead. The game continued with both teams rather evenly matched into the second half. Vaksala’s Josefin Jarstad came close to extend the lead but her volley from a corner kick was denied by the crossbar. Instead Olivia Johansson Alcaide equalised for Göteborg with just a few minutes left of the game. Vaksala was not to be denied though, and only a minute later Klara Molin scored after a corner kick. The gold medals were won by Vaksala.

The Swedish team AIK won a hard-fought victory against Danish side Greve Fudbol in the final of the Girls 13 tournament. Sophia Redenstrand scored the winner from the penalty spot early in the first half. Greve, who had not conceded a single goal in the entire tournament, finished the tournament without conceding a single goal in open play. AIK showed tenacious spirit as they barely allowed Greve to create much in the way of open chances. The MVP of the match, Wilma Ljung, directed play well from her position in central midfield for AIK.

They continued in similar fashion with goals from Filippa Bjarre and Felicia Saving, making the score 3 – 0 after only 11 minutes. Arsenal tried to counter, mainly with their skilful striker Aryssa Mahrt, but had a hard time getting away from the relentless pressure of the Swedish team. With AIK continuing to combine well, the score was 5 – 0 at halftime.
The second half saw Arsenal getting a bit more time with the ball, continuing to fight the whole game. AIK, however, was just too strong on the day. The game’s MVP, AIK:s Julia Åkerling-Kermoury, scored twice, as did Felicia Saving. Linn Holm scored on a beautiful through ball, while Aryssa Mahrt scored for Arsenal.
