oh yesterday benfica tied zero with setubal , 0-0 at the end of the game , and then there were PKs ( just in case its necessary to pick the winner of the tournament) , but again...was a draw lol

tonight derby county lost 1-0 to setubal (again a draw with the PKs) , so that makes it that both benfica and derby will need a win saturday

actually...i think benfica needs a win and needs to score more goals than setubal did..something like that...think derby doesnt stand a chance to win it

but these tournaments matter for the chance to test the players and give them quality playing time

We only played youth team players against Vitoria. Looked like it might be a heavy defeat in the first half, but we did quite well in the second half.

just arrived home but with a quick check...we won 4-0...its not the main goal of these tournaments but its always nice to start the season (or pre season) with victories
