Álvaro Morata reached the Kick COVID FIFA20 semifinal, a charity tournament organized by LaLiga North America, Uninterrupted and the Women’s International Champions Cup. It features celebrities and NBA, NFL, LaLiga and NWSL athletes. Our forward teamed up with former Cincinnati Bengals player Chad Johnson, who we had the pleasure to meet during the Atleti Summer Tour. After beating Nyom and Cepela, they lost to Pau Torres and John Collins (2-4 and 1-1) in the semifinal.
