International Matches - Under 18

Copa del Atlantico

Spain's under 18 side won the XXXVII invitation Atlantic Cup in Las Palmas after winning two of their three matches. Julen Lopetegui's team started with a 4-0 victory over Switzerland, with two goals each for Valencia's Paco and Málaga's Juanmi. In the second match they beat hosts Canary Islands 1-4, with Real Madrid's Jesé opening the scoring and Paco coming on at half time to help himself to a hat-trick. That was enough to take the trophy, even though they lost the last game 1-2 to Mexico, Jairo's late strike not enough to overturn two earlier goals. (04.02.11)
