      A mixed bag this weekend for the Bianconeri’s junior J-Academy sides as the U17s lose to Sampdoria while the U15s finish runners-up in an international tournament in Germany
      U17: kean brace not enough to beat samp

      A match that began extremely well thanks to Moise Bioty Kean’s 18th minute strike quickly diminished for Felice Tufano’s U17s this afternoon as three unanswered goals followed for Sampdoria either side of half-time to put the game out of reach.

      Kean would double his personal tally with a consolation goal six minutes from time but it was too little too late for the Juve young guns who, in the words of their coach, “lacked the tenacity and hunger on display in last week’s derby win over Torino”

      Speaking after the game, Tufano added, “We made too many mistakes today and ultimately that is what cost us the match. We must learn to cut out the kind of sloppy goals that we conceded this afternoon and indeed last week against Torino.

      “We’ve got a massive tie coming up with Fiorentina next week and before then we need to make it clear to the boys that if you go into any game without the perfect mentality then you’ll struggle against anyone at this level.” 

      U15: fruitful weekend in Hallencup

      Contrasting fortunes faced Davide Cei’s U15s, who finished in second place at the Hallencup in Germany, an international youth tournament featuring some of Europe’s best academy outfits.

      Pulling off impressive wins over Chelsea (2-1), Lech Poznan (4-1), Bayern Munich (3-2) and Anderlecht (3-0) on their way to the final, Cei’s boys would eventually fall to Hertha Berlin 5-2 in the event’s showpiece on Sunday afternoon.

      The Bianconeri would not leave completely empty-handed, however, as young star Costanza was named best defender of the tournament.
