The Russian and Irish U-17 teams played an exciting match today with some of the young pearls of international football. A duel marked by impressive intensity and tactical rigor, although with some doses of genius that will undoubtedly have called the attention of international scouts who usually visit this kind of games.
Victory with small advantage due to the equality of both teams. Good victory of the Russian team, but the Irish pushed strong and there were phases of the game in which it was not clear who would get the victory.
Both the Russian and the Irish Federation are staying in Meliá Villaitana Football Center, where both have remained to prepare this game and last Friday’s friendly.
The two teams intend to participate in the European Under-17 to be held in Estonia and have decided to share a stage in Benidorm with Football Impact. This way they can be measured in high-level friendly matches, before their participation in the qualifiers of the coming months.
