Villarreal “U23” will compete in England again

We won this trophy two years ago

Villarreal will compete again in the “U-23 Premier League International Cup”.

We won this competition in 2015-16, defeating PSV in the final in extra-time at Millwall’s New Den; this year we will face West Ham United, Benfica and Tottenham Hotspur in the group stage.

Athletic Bilbao is the other Spanish team competing this year.

Recall all matches take place in England; our schedule is

Sept 6 West Ham U23, at Dagenham and Redbridge’s ground

Sept 20 Benfica U23, at neutral site TBA

Nov 14 Tottenham Hotspur U23, at Stevenage FC

I would expect Javi Calleja, as Villarreal B’s ‘mister’, will head our team, which will have mostly B team players with possibly some C teamers.
