Friendly tournament, Ireland

Spain's under 19 side won a friendly tournament in Ireland after three victories in three matches. Luis Milla and Aitor Karanka were in charge for the first time, and their side started with a 3-0 win over Ukraine, the goals coming in the second half from Nacho (Real Madrid), Salva (Sevilla) and Sergio (Mallorca). They had more problems with their second game the following day, although a first minute strike from Villarreal's Jordi Pablo was enough to see them through 1-0 against Portugal. And two days later they rounded things off beating hosts Ireland 0-2, with goals from Villarreal's Mario and Barcelona's Iago. (21.08.08)
