Under-18s take on Real Madrid in London

04/09/2014  Comments (3)  jump
Everton's Under-18s will get to put themselves against their peers from the Spanish club this Friday as one of six teams participating in the Under-18s Champions Cup in London.

The young Blues were drawn into Group A along with Tottenham Hotspur rounding out the three-team group and each team will play the others in 60-minute matches. Depending on where they finish in the group, they will then face one of Liverpool, West Ham or Portuguese side Benfica on Saturday.

U18s manager Kevin Sheedy says his players are relishing the opportunity.

Real Madrid is the first game so everyone will want to be playing in that, he told evertontv. We will put a team out to do our best and it will be a good experience and helpful in the players' development.

We have played against them at junior levels so we know what system they will play. We are aware of how they are likely to play.

We play a passing game so it will be important against that type of opposition to keep a lot of possession of the ball and limit them to few opportunities.

Updates will available on The Everton Live section of as well as from the official @Everton Twitter account on Friday and Saturday.

At Tottenham's training ground so presumably no admittance. I was looking forward to some kind of Emirates spectacle.

And why is it on the official site there's no obvious way to find U21/ U18 fixtures? I had to get the location from playing Sheedy's interview.

Could have sworn when I read it earlier we only had 13 players available due to terrible injuries and players away with the England set up? If so its a real shame. Pity Sheeds canÂ’t pass as under 18.

I hope we pull some of the U18s playing in the U21s back to help do the business... would be great to have a successful run at this after not doing as well in South Africa.
