Villarreal’s “under-23” side (mostly our B team, but with some C teamers as well) head off to the UK to play Hertha Berlin in the second match of the Premier League u-23 International Cup.
The team is:
Keepers: Joan Feminías, Diego Fuoli
Defenders: Antonio Leal, Joan Salvá, Pepe Castaño, Ramón Bueno, Edu Adell and Enric Franquesa
Midfielders: Iván Martín, Pedro Martínez, Carlos Beitia, Fran Álvarez, Sergio Lozano, Adrián Riera and Mukwelle Akale.
Strikers: Dani Villa, Mario González and Simón Moreno.
The match is Wednesday at 11AM Pacific coast time (20:00 in Spain). I do not know if it is being shown anywhere—I doubt it. I have been advised by Villarreal that the match is taking place at the Aldershot Town STADIUM ( the Recreation Ground), not the practice facilities of Aldershot Town as has been reported. (Aldershot closed their academy a couple of years ago and there seems to be some unrest at board level, with the supporters’ group resigning their seat at the table.)
So if any of you in the UK can make it, please go along and support the lads!!
This is Hertha’s first match in the group; we drew with Swansea 1-1 in our first match.
