FCT Football Association chairman Adam Mouktar Mohammed has congratulated Galadima Football Academy after they emerged champions of the 7th edition of the Dreamland-Hungary Tournament in Abuja.
Galadima pipped another Abuja club Hook Sports 4-2 on penalties after scores stood at 0-0 at full time.
Galadima finished as best third losers after the group phase of the U19 tournament before they edged past Jazzy Stars of Jos 1-0 in the semifinal.
Group winners Hook stopped local rivals IB Sports Dreams 2-1 in the other semifinal.
“Congratulations to Galadima for flying the flag high and better luck next time for another Abuja club, Hook Sports,” saluted Mouktar Mohammed, who took the traditional kick-off in the final along with Hungarian ambassador to Nigeria.
“The FCT has continued to prove to be the new home of top footballing talent.
“The FA will continue to support and promote the game at this level because the grassroots produces the talent who go on to become top stars around the world.”
Nigeria U16 international fullback Agho Kelvin Obude from IB Sports Dreams was named the MVP of the competition.
Scouts from Hungary and Slovakia selected five players from the 12-team tournament for trials.
