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

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!
