Villa Peace Out In Spain

Martin O'Neill has spoken ahead of the Peace Cup Villa compete in this week in Spain.

Villa play Malaga on Saturday and Atlante (Mexico) next week (Wed, July 29).

Villa could potentially face Read Madrid if they progress.

The Villa boss told the official site:

'The incentives are there for us because it is competitive and it's a build up to the Premier League which eventually is what it's all about. It's competitive stuff because you've got the possibility of getting into the semi-final and the final. All of those things are ahead of us.'

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.

The home kit will also be revealed today in Spain.

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!
