Edu Suárez and Eliott Mounoud have started the beach soccer season with a new League title. The two Torrenses soccer players conquered the championship of the United Arab Emirates with Al-Wasl. It is the seventh league title for the former Spanish international and the fifth for the Swiss national team goalkeeper.
The road to the title has not been easy. Al-Wasl had to overcome a very tough group stage in which only the first qualified. The set of the two torrenses prevailed in the three encounters and managed to accede to the semifinals. They got through the round against Shabab Al-Ahly, the competition favourites, 7-5.
The final, against Shabab Al-Ahly B, was even and ended in a tie at 4 goals on the scoreboard. Penalties decided the champion that was the Al-Wasl team.
The tournament had no individual prizes but Edu Suárez finished with 6 goals and Eliott with 1. “We are very happy to start the year with a new title”, assured Edu Suárez.
