Italian youth have participated in the project since 2014, and this season will be no exception," said Viktor Zubkov.

"I am very proud that my team has won the Gallini World Cup! It's a great chance to prove yourself! Right after that match I went to see my mates from the Football for Friendship programme.

And I am happy that today I came here to give the award to the CF Real Madrid on behalf of the children of the whole world," said Emmeke Henschen (Netherlands), 15 years old.
