International Fixtures - Under 16

Under 16 Santarem International Tournament

26-29 January 2005. Spain's under 16 side won the Santarem International tournament in Portugal after taking maximum points from their three games. Three teams were invited to join the hosts, including Spain, Denmark and Scotland, who Spain beat 3-2 in their opening match. Valencia's Aaron put them ahead from the penalty spot, and although Hepburn equalised, goals from Emilio and Aaron again either side of half time gave the youngsters an unassailable lead. Goodwille pulled another back for the Scots after the break. In their second match the following day, Spain beat Denmark 2-0 with goals from Marcos early on and Emilio near the end to set up a final clash with Portugal. And four goals in the first hour saw Alfonso Fraile's side through to a comfortable 4-1 victory to take the cup. Goals came from Emilio, Samu (2) and Aarón, who was voted best player in the competition.
