Riga FC took second and Pafos FC finished third
After getting so far in the competition, ASD Napoli and Riga FC were both just one step away from winning the World Winners Cup 2023…
Victory in the final for ASD Napoli
ASD Napoli win 6-3 against Riga FC.
Zurlo broke the deadlock in the final for the Italian team, finding the net just over a minute into the first period and Lucao doubled the advantage minutes later. However, the Riga FC weren’t going to back down, as strikes from Bernardo and Wesley Silva brought them back on level terms with 12 minutes played.
The second period belonged to ASD Napoli, scoring three times in the period. Sciacca, Palmacci and Sanfilippo were the scorers, as their side led 5-2 after two periods.
Riga FC’s challenge to make their way back into the fixture was made even harder in the third period, as Lucao netted his second of the game and despite a goal from Vasiljevs, it proved to only be a consolation for the Latvian team.
A fantastic moment for ASD Napoli as they became the new World Winners Cup champions.
After the final, three individual awards were given out. Lucao was the MVP of the tournament, Paterniti was the best goalkeeper, and Alisson was the top scorer with 14 goals.
