Lusitânia Brazil win the triple in diplomatic football league

Lusitânia Brazil swept the boards in the Diplomatic Football Association–International Football League season, by topping the DFA League, winning the IDS Diplomatic Cup Final and ending the season with a triumphant 3-1 victory over rivals Poland in the final of the Marek Borowicz Tournament.

This is the first time in the history of the League’s 16-year history that one team has won all three competitions. In a thrilling finale to the season, Brazil had to come from behind to clinch victory and the triple, a fitting precursor to the football World Cup this June.

Ireland won the consolation Plate Final, beating Spain by four goals to two.
