La Masia took hold on Euro 2012 final
NO football academy in the world can boast with that! The match Barça – Juve will be played in Kiev.
“La Masia” already has a well established football history. European Championship final will be played under the sign of Barcelona’s famous academy, which will have in the last match from this edition of UEFA Euro not less than ten representatives.
Valdes, Pique, Fabregas, Jordi Alba, Xavi, Iniesta, Busquets, Pedro, Reina and Thiago Motta learned football at FC Barcelona’s academy. From this perspective, the Catalan club is the one that has the most representatives in the final in Kiev, a number of 8, after Jordi Alba’s transfer from Valencia.
Until to buy Alba, Barcelona shared the title of the team that gives the most players in the final with Juventus Torino. Italy’s champion is represented by Buffo, Chiellini, Barzagli, Bonucci, Marchisio, Ghiacherini and Pirlo. In another interpretation, the match in Kiev on July 1st is a final between FC Barcelona and Juventus, or between the Spanish style and Italian philosophy.
