Barcelona and Atlético Madrid faced off in the final of the youth tournament and it finished 0-0 in normal time.

In the subsequent shootout, Barça's 14-year-old goalkeeper Peña stole the spotlight.

The precocious shot-stopper faced nine penalties and saved six of them, including all four of the shots faced in sudden death.

To cap things off, he stepped up to convert his side's final penalty and then saved the opposition's last strike to seal the victory.

The final score was 4-3 after a total of 18 penalties were taken.
