Incredibly rare Real Madrid Copa Del Rey Original players winners trophy
Copa del Rey Final Match Winning Player’s Original Trophy which was awarded to the Real Madrid members by the King of Spain Felipe VI at the Mestalla in Valencia on the 16th April 2014 . This is an original trophy neither replica nor reproduction and was obtained from one of Real Madrid staff members. This member received this trophy in the Spanish Federation Dinner the night before the match, which is the reason that the cup has two pairs of colored laces of the participating teams in the final match (FC Barcelona & Real Madrid). The cup also has its original jewel maker case.
The 2014 Copa del Rey Final was the 112th final of Spain’s premier football cup since its establishment (including two seasons where two rival editions were played). The match was an El Clásico between Real Madrid and Barcelona on 16 April 2014 at Mestalla in Valencia, making it the seventh such Copa del Rey final (the most recent was also played at the Mestalla on 20 April 2011).
Real Madrid won the cup for the 19th time after a 2–1 win with Gareth Bale scoring one of the best goals ever seen in a Copa Del Rey Final , after 11 minutes Real Madrid went in front when Ángel Di María’s low left footed shot from the left went through Jordi Alba’s legs and in off goalkeeper José Manuel Pinto’s left hand. Barcelona were level in the 68th minute when Marc Bartra headed into the far corner of the net after a Xavi corner from the left.
The winning goal came with five minutes to go when Gareth Bale picked the ball up just inside his own half on the left wing and went past Bartra at a blistering pace (at one point off the field before running back onto the field) leaving Bartra in his wake, before running into the penalty area, evading more challenges and then composedly slotting the ball left-footed low past the goalkeeper from six yards out. Some football pundits labelled his goal as a masterclass, whilst Barcelona coach Gerardo Martino admitted that it was “difficult to see a player sprint like that at that stage of the game”.
The winners trophies and the big trophy were produced by Alegre jewel maker; a Spanish jewel maker in Madrid who produces all the prizes given to participants in all Spanish sport activities, including La Liga, Copa del Rey, and Supercopa de España. Alegre jewel maker does not sell its products to the general public, his jewel designs are given only to The Spanish Football Federation who awards these prizes to the finalists
