Four Ateneans (one from Ateneo Grade School and three from Ateneo Junior High School) played under the banner of the Makati FC Elite Born 2007 squad that represented the Philippines at the Gothia World Youth Cup held in Gothenburg, Sweden last July 15-21, 2019: Carlos Kintanar (6-Intramuros), Shawn Perea (La Storta/7-Collins), Carlos Reyes (Cardoner/7-Alfonso), and Santino Reyes (La Storta/7-Corby). Makati FC Elite 07 played tough and showcased world-class football to win versus Sweden (2-1),  England (4-3) and went out blazing all the way to a do-or-die game in the knockout stages. They won 2 games to place 2nd in the tough Group 1 in the group stages and put up a good fight in a thrilling penalty shootout against Guatemala in the knockout stages of Division A.
 
The team’s European tour also included the World Paris Games, where the Filipinos reached the semi-finals of the playoffs B vs France 2-2 (4-5 penalty shootout).
