International Matches - Under 19

Under 19 international tournament

Spain finished second behind hosts Portugal in this friendly under 19 tournament in Porto. Luis Milla's side opened with a 1-1 draw against the hosts, Valencia's Paco Alcácer equalising after Luis Gustavo had given the home team an early lead. The youngsters lost the second game 0-1 to France, but they recovered to beat Russia in the last match, with Arsenal's Ignasi Miquel getting the first early on and Sevilla's Luis Alberto adding a penalty three minutes later. Málaga's Juanmi wrapped things up near the end before the East Europeans pulled one back from a second penalty. The matches served as preparation for next month's European Elite round qualifiers which take place in Switzerland. (22.04.11)
