Members of Real Madrid’s Foundation Academy in Egypt celebrated the team’s European Champions League title in an open-top bus parade in Cairo on Friday.

Cheering and singing on the top of the bus, the Real Madrid boys unfurled two huge banners, with one of the them reading “La Decima”, a Spanish reference to a 10th Champions League crown that has eluded the Spanish giants since 2002, and the other bearing a picture of the coveted trophy.

Real Madrid won the title after beating city rivals Atletico Madrid 4-1 after extra-time in a thrilling final in Lisbon earlier this month.

The Real Madrid Foundation Academy in Egypt was launched in late 2012.

“It is dedicated to developing the youngsters, boys and girls, from 4 to 17 years old, into professional players through high standard football education that is supervised by the Real Madrid Foundation trainers, both Spanish and Egyptian coaches following guidelines set by the foundation,” the Academy says on its Facebook page.
