International Matches - Under 16

Friendly internationals

Spain's under 16 side took part in an international tournament in France in October, López Caro's side finishing third after picking up four points in all. The youngsters beat Italy 1-0 in their opening game, Valladolid's Nacho getting the only goal. However they lost 2-1 to Holland the following day, missing an early penalty and going two down before Atlético's Luis Acosta pulled one back near the end. And in the last match they drew 2-2 with hosts France, an effort from Saúl and a Quesada penalty twice putting the youngsters ahead before the home side levelled the scores both times. Holland won the tournament after beating Italy in the other group match. (01.11.09)
