We’ve been drawn in Group C of the international youth tournament, with our fixtures scheduled to begin at 9am local time on Friday against the youth team of Mexican top flight side Club Atlas.

We’ll then meet fellow Liga MX side CF Pachuca on Saturday, kick-off once again 9am local time, before taking on Erik Lamela’s former club, Argentine outfit River Plate, at 9am local time on Sunday.

Our group stage campaign ends at 9am local time on Tuesday when we play CD Universidad Católica of Chile.

Clubs such as Benfica, FC Midtjylland and Boca Juniors are also involved in the competition.

Our youngsters’ most recent overseas tournament campaign saw them reach the final of the IMG Cup in Florida last month before losing on penalties to Maccabi Haifa.
