Under 17 friendly internationals

Aitor Karanka's new squad played two warm up games in Portugal in preparation for next March's Elite round. In the first on 1st December they ran out clear 0-3 victors, Paco setting up Juan Miguel to head the first and then scoring the second himself with less than a quarter of an hour gone. The third came later on when Thiago Ferreira turned Iñigo's free kick past his own keeper. Two days later though the youngsters were beaten 4-1, the hosts going three up at the break to put the result beyond doubt. Edu headed one back from a José Gómez free kick, but Bruma got his second of the day for Portugal after that. (03.11.09)
