      The Juventus Pulcini have triumphed in the prestigious Kappa U11 Mini Mondial tournament, coming out on top over such notable sides as Barcelona, Liverpool, Chelsea, Dynamo Moscow, Toulouse, Marseille and Monaco.

      The 2003-born Bianconeri beat 60 other teams to the accolade, many of whom compete in professional leagues, overcoming Liverpool on penalties in a thrilling final.

      The young side coached by Massimiliano Marchio, Andrea Galelli and Fabio Moschini showed real character throughout the campaign, starting by winning five of their seven group games and drawing the other two.

      In the quarter-finals, Juve knocked out defending champions Nantes with a 2-1 win, and it was the same result against fellow French side Toulouse in the semis.

      The final win over Liverpool was the cherry on the cake of an excellent tournament, a resolute performance in which they came back from behind to eventually go on to win it.
