The Eagles, who participated in this competition for the third time, ended with three victories to finish with nine points and edged out Manchester United followed by Arsenal. Benfica president Luís Filipe Vieira said: “The International Champions Cup is the most prestigious pre-season tournament in the world, with the presence of the best teams and therefore it means a lot to Benfica to win this title.

Overall it was a great experience for all team members who competed at the highest level in the United States, where we had great support from our fans. We are very happy to have won this tournament and hope to be able to participate in the ICC again next summer”.
