Big & rising stars from Gallini Cup

Some of these players are already big stars, for example the European Champion Alex Meret, or Daniele Rugani, winner of seven Scudetti, but we are sure that many of them are also ready to reach the top. We can mention Kristjan Asllani, which is born in 2002 and after winning the Campionato Primavera is already in his senior National team (Albania), but also Simone Pafundi, the first 2006 to have ever played in Serie A.

We can see many Gallini Cup players in Serie A because the tournament is a true scouting hub. In this article for example they remind the story of Dejan Kulusevski:

«This is a huge stage for young players, where for a few days they can compete with the strongest Italian and European clubs and show their qualities. I will give an example with our well-known Dejan Kulusevski. He took part in the tournament with his home club Brommapojkarna, Sweden. He played great matches and was spotted by the Atalanta scouts. A few months later he was bought and became a player of La Dea. The rest is history, as people say.»

We wish to all our players the best for their careers and hopefully see you again at Gallini Cup.
