He also says Villa will check out the fitness of the international players and then consider which can feature during the tournament.

Other teams involved:

LDU Quito - Ecuador
Lyon - France
Juventus - Italy
Atlante - Mexico
Porto - Portugal
Al-lttihan - Saudi Arabia
Seongnam llhwa Chunma - South Korea
Malaga - Spain
Sevilla - Spain
Real Madrid - Spain
Besiktas - Turkey

Squad: Brad Friedel, Brad Guzan, Elliot Parish, Marc Albrighton, Barry Bannan, John Carew, Ciaran Clark, Carlos Cuellar, Curtis Davies, Marlon Harewood, Chris Herd, Emile Heskey, Zat Knight, Eric Lichaj, Shane Lowry, Isaiah Osbourne, Stiliyan Petrov, Nigel Reo-Coker, Moustapha Salifou, Nicky Shorey, Steve Sidwell, Ashley Young, Luke Young, Jonathan Hogg, Wilfred Bouma, Andreas Weimann.

Strange that Bouma and Luke Young are in the squad? What is the latest on Luke Young? Why didn't he play in any of our other 2 friendlies? Not too bothered about seeing the new kit, would rather see a new transfer or 5 being unveiled in it!
