Real Madrid defeats Galatasaray with contribution from Castilla players – La Liga Special (Part 2)
Antonio Adan, Raphael Varane, Nacho and starred in Real Madrid’s backline as the Spanish giants bettered Galatasaray in Trofeo Santiago Bernabeu against Galatasaray. The aforementioned players were joined by others from the reserve team totaling
to seven youth players as they put on the white jersey on the night. In the tenacious affair, Real Madrid won 2-1 with hitting the back of the net.
Defensive midfielder Armando Sosa Pena, or better known as Mandi, came on to the pitch in the dying minutes of the match to make his presence noted. The youngster has been a part of Real Madrid B setup since 2010, making 21 league appearances in the process.
Standing at 5 feet 10 inches, Mandi has the physical attributes to match his technical abilities and this has aided his maturity as a professional. He has played regularly for the reserve side, and will be looking to get increased minutes as Mourinho’s defensive
midfield options dwindle.
Joining his fellow Castilla teammates in the first team was Alejandro Fernández Iglesias or more commonly known as Álex. He played a bit part role in the overall proceedings as Los Blancos ensured a hard fought victory. The Madrid-born player has come of
age in the youth academies, going on to represent setups he is eligible to play for.
A central midfielder by trade, he is equally good at playing in withdrawn roles on the wings. Playing alongside older brother Nacho in Real Madrid first team would have been an exhilarating experience for the eighteen year old, who made his La Liga debut
in earlier in March. with Real winning the match 3-1.
He was introduced in the B team last year and was ever present in the first team throughout the year. Earning a promotion to Real Madrid first team in his first year, and that too under Jose Mourinho, says a lot about calibre of the youngster and the wonders
we should expect from him.Álvaro-c5280 Morata was on the pitch as Los Merengues raised the Trofeo Santiago Bernabeu in front of a roaring crowd. He has been fighting for a slot in the Madrid squad, after entertaining with his performances in the Segunda Division with the B team. He scored
15 goals in 29 league appearance to give a glimpse of his true potential. Such appetite for goals at such young age shows the genius of his abilities.
He was on the pitch for a short period as he continues his recovery after a summer of international outings with Spanish U19 side. Morata was on song for the juvenile La Roja side, racking up 11 goals in 13 appearances. He looks set to have a bright future
in the Spanish capital. Mourinho is expected to incorporate him into the first team for upcoming campaign.
Real Madrid have assembled a squad full of players who have unquestionable quality to go with their burgeoning reputations. With Castilla bringing players to complement the youth drive in process, Madridista will be looking forward to a bright future on
the horizon.
