Joy ‘Celeste’. The 2021 Generation Cup champion was defined. Sporting Cristal managed to defeat Alianza Lima in the final of the U-18 tournament after the penalty shoot-out and, with that, they obtained their ticket to be part of the U-20 Libertadores Cup.

The duel for the final of the U-18 Generation Cup was quite close and ended in a 1-1 draw in the 90 minutes. After that, extra time was played, but they could not change the result, which is why they had to define it on penalties.

The clash began with the ‘celestial’ going ahead at 32 minutes with a goal from Gilmar Paredes, however, shortly after the clash ended – at 94 minutes – Christian Valladolid placed the equalizer.

The definition from the twelve steps was started by Alianza Lima, Carlos Montoya made the first shot and defined next to him, Paulo Mesías gave the goal cry to the blue and white; however, Mauricio Carrasco and Jorge del Castillo missed their chances after two saves from the sky-blue Matías Córdova.

The ‘rimenses’ did not fail. Joshua Cantt, Flavio Alcedo, Leonardo Díaz and Marlon Perea were in charge of defining the championship in its final stage. With this, Cazulo got his first championship as a coach.

It should be noted that to reach the final, Jorge Cazulo’s team beat Pirata FC 2-1. Roy Rodríguez (against) and Marlon Perea scored for the Bajopontinos, while Luis Duque discounted a penalty; while the Victorian cast eliminated Cantolao through Juan Pablo Goicochea.
