Futebol Clube do Porto, or FC Porto as they are popularly known, are proud of their football culture.
Nicknamed the Dragons, they are 119 years old, and have cemented their place as Portugal’s top team, winning eight of the last 10 league titles.
Little wonder the Porto Under-15 side heading to Singapore to compete in the Canon Lion City Cup are looking to win the competition – and accomplish the feat in some style.
In an e-mail interview, Under-15 team manager Rui Silva told The New Paper: “Porto have a culture of play and personality more than the other clubs in Portugal, so we win more often in both domestic and international competitions.
“We wanted to play in the Canon Lion City Cup because there are world-class teams competing, and Singapore is a country different from those that we usually visit.
“At the tournament, we wish to demonstrate the individual and collective quality of our Under-15 boys.”
