International Matches - Under 19

Northern Ireland under-19 friendly tournament

Spain's under 19 squad took part in a friendly tournament in Northern Ireland, which was set up to try out the installations in the country prior to the finals of the European championship next July. Spain drew their first match 0-0 with Scotland, but lost 2-3 to tournament winners Ukraine before beating the hosts 0-2 in the last match at Windsor Park, Belfast. The scorers against Ukraine were Osasuna's Raúl and Real Madrid's Jurado, and Barcelona's Toni got both the goals against the Irish side. Ginés Melendez's squad will be competing in the final qualifying round next month in a four way mini-league with France, Portugal and Israel, which is scheduled to take place in Spain. (24.02.05)
