Villarreal's first team may be on a two-week break, but not so the B team.  They have a match next weekend away to Reus, and many of their players are in England for a match tomorrow--this is the first of three in the group stage of the Premier League International Cup.

The English sides have an advantage because all the matches are played there (UEFA didn't want to sanction the competition).  Last year Villarreal went 1-1-1 and narrowly missed out on progressing.

The team for the match against Norwich City's U-21 team is:

  • Keepers: Ander and Ximo Miralles.
  • Defenders: Miguelón, Marcos Mauro, Javi Ramírez, Carlos Julio, Juan Ibiza y Maldonado.
  • Midfielders: Morlanes, Larrea, Leo Suárez, Javi García y Chuca.
  • Strikers: Franco Acosta, Fran Sol, Mario y Carlos Martínez.
