WATCH: University World Cup, Men’s Grand Finale

THE GRAND FINALE: THE UNIVERSITY WORLD CUP MEN’S TITLE DAY

Commanding semifinal wins for the University of Wollongong and the University of the Republic set up the grand finale to this event's inaugural edition: the men’s gold medal game.

 

Considered a bit of a dark horse heading into the tournament, the University of Wollongong earned their bid to win the University World Cup with a clinical 2-0 victory over the Autonomous University of Mexico State.

 

Led by the high-scoring Beattie brothers, the Australian student-athletes will take on the Uruguayan — the University of the Republic. With a mix of sure-footed artistry and hard-nosed football play, the boys from Montevideo bring an adaptable and effective brand of football.

 

A one-time Summer Universiade football player himself, University of the Republic head coach Alejandro Heguy Charamelo says it feels as if fate is on the Uruguayan side.

 

“As a Uruaguan, football is our way of life. We feel playing for the final is our bit of destiny,” Charamelo said. “We will try. We will try. What I know is that we will fight from the first minute to the ninetieth.”
