Martin O'Neill said after the Peace Cup victory, picked up deservedly against Juventus who fielded a strong team against our very promising youngsters mixed in with first team regulars that everyone will go home happy.
The Villa boss told AVTV that he couldn't be more pleased adding:
'It is great for the team and I am particularly pleased for the young players in the side, who performed brilliantly throughout the tournament. It was nice to have competed well and obviously nice to have won it. I think we will all go home very happy.'

LOL, he also said when Carlos Cuellar took a penalty his heart was in his mouth!
'It is great to have won the competition - great for the young players and very good for the senior players as well. They haven't had much rest between matches - we've had things to contend with in terms of injuries, illnesses and suspensions - and we even had to send for some reinforcements - basically three members of last season's Youth Team.'

Not that I could possibly have seen any of the game as it wasn't on tv and obviously no one uses the illegal streaming sites... (!) ... but I have to say the kids played brilliantly and even young Chris Herd who missed a pen, along with Steve Sidwell at least showed he'd got the guts to step up and take one and before some of the regular players. Marc Albrighton also stood out all competition, looks like we've yet another great crop of youngsters who will be banging on the first team door very soon.
