USA 1 SPAIN 4 | FIFA U - 20 WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP GROUP A RESULT

Spain kicked off its participation in the FIFA U-20 World Championships being held in Turkey with a 1 - 4 victory over USA in its Group A match. An opening victory in theses types of tournaments is vital so as to not suffer unnecessary nerves & pressures in the other Group matches, & what a Group. The other two teams are France & Ghana both are physically stronger & will test Spain to the limit. In fact earlier France defeated Ghana 3 - 1 in their scheduled Group A match.

Spain was dominant & just victors with some fine play that will lift their confidence. There needs to be some fine tuning & no doubt will be discussed in the training sessions but overall a good start with a less than optimum US Soccer U-20 team.

The main Spanish Football protagonists were Real Madrid youngster Jese swho scored twice - in the 4th & 43rd min - & FC Barcelona "pearl" Deulofeu with his two goals - 41st & 61st min. Both these players are being closely watched as they are called to do big things in this U-20 World Championship. 

For the US team Gil got their goal in the 78th min with a fantastic power driver placed way beyond the reach of Spanish goalie Sotres. Nice bit of class shown.
