Promising midfielder Miguel Azeez has added another feather to his cap after he was named Player of the Tournament in the recently concluded Liam Brady Cup.
The youth football tournament was played on April 9th and 10th at the Arsenal sports facilities in London.
The young Gunners defeated Celtic, Valencia and Manchester United 3-0, 1-0 and 2-0 respectively to set up another meeting with the Spanish side in the final which they won 2-1.
