11 Athletic Club Youth Players Called Up To The Euskadi U18 And U16 Teams
The Basque National Youth Teams will be back in action on Wednesday with games taking place at Ibai in Vitoria. Euskadi U18 will face off with San Ignacio CF while Euskadi U16 will play against Deportivo Alavés. The squads were officially announced on Monday with Athletic and Lezama well represented as is usually the case.
CD Basconia’s Ruben Azcona and Beñat Prados were both called up for the U18 team along with Alejandro Ibarrondo, Ander Lorente, and Kepa Uriarte from Juvenil A and Adrián Trespalacios from Juvenil B. For the U16 team Beñat Gerenabarrena and Nico Serrano of Juvenil B were called up as were Alejandro Rego, Hugo Rincón, and Ibai Asenjo from Cadete A.
It’s always special to see young stars from Lezama get the chance to play with Euskadi and internationally with Spain. The players have the opportunity to grow in experience and develop their games while training and competing against other top footballers their age.
