Final score was a 7-0 win.

I should note that the other guys not mentioned have been left in Porto to sort out their futures. Guys like Orlando Sa, Tomas Costa, Hugo Ventura, Miguel Lopes, etc.

Have you got any clue of what the future might hold for Tomas Costa, Josh?

Really looking forward to see Kelvin plays.. i've checked up on him and read some very promising words regarding his talent.

Btw, with Kleber joining - does that mean the end of Walter? how does the new coach rumored to value him?

Don't waste your time on jealously; sometimes you're ahead, sometimes you're behind.

The race is long, and in the end - it's only with yourself.

He's not really new, he was the assistant last year.

Pretty sure Walter would stay though, especially since he just arrived last year and didn't have a bad season.

Walter will fight with Kleber for the 2nd spot, none of them has anything guaranteed, he won't be sold.

Thats good to hear.

He had a pretty awful season in my book and many others i'm sure.. not on the pitch whereh e usuaully delivers, but outside it.

I still hold him in very high regard from all the Brazilian youth setups.. hope he gets his act together this time and starts fresh.

Walter needs to take his fitness seriously. Nobody can question his ability.

Porto won 10-1 against Gutersloh. Hat-tricks by Hulk and Walter and single goals by Ruben Micael, Maicon, Djalma and Kleber sealed this expressive win. The highlight was Christian, from Porto's U-18 team, who stole the show with 3 assists in the second half.

BTW, Falcão scored 2 goals against Bolivia.

Yeah, Christian Atsu is going to be an awesome player. Explosive talent.

5 goals for Hulk in the first two games.

What position does he play? Pretty good debut there by getting 3 assists in just one half.

Natural left winger, but can also play on the right or in the middle.

Decent stuff, pretty versatile player then. Hope to hear more about him in the future.

Oh, and Josh, ignore Jonny. He has...issues.

Belluschi and Fernando have joined the squad after recovering from their injuries. They participated in today's second session in the afternoon after working indoors during the morning session.

Tiago Ferreira has left Germany to go join up with the Portugal U-20 squad, and James Rodriguez will leave tomorrow to join up with the Colombian squad. Best of luck to both of them in the U-20 World Cup.

Jorge Fucile is expected to arrive in Germany today. He was given a few extra days off after having a death in the family.
