Tucuman Participating for the First Time
Previously, teams from Argentina have participated in Dana Cup but, although, Argentina is known for great players like Diego Maradona and Lionel Messi, players with Argentinian passports have not been present in huge numbers at the tournament in Hjørring. But perhaps things will change.
‘For several years, we have wanted more teams from Argentina at Dana Cup, so we are very satisfied that we can welcome Tucuman this year. We have known Tucuman for many years and we are happy that the club has chosen to be part of the tournament this year,’ head of the Dana Cup, Jette Andersen, emphasises.
Tucuman participates in class B12 and, on Monday, the players lit the flame in the centre of Hjørring, thereby, opening the 36th edition of the world’s third largest football tournament for youth. Then the mayor of Hjørring welcomed the club at the town hall.
