Alejandro Garnacho is celebrating winning his first international youth cap for Spain.

Garnacho made his debut for Spain’s under-18s side at a mini-tournament in Romania.

Spain are competing against Romania, Turkey and Portugal, with the final match against their Iberian neighbours taking place today.

Garnacho, pictured below wearing the number 17 shirt, wrote of his ‘honour’ at making his international bow.

Garnacho’s international involvement was the reason for his absence from Manchester United’s under-18s game against Middlesbrough last week.

England under-18s duo Sam Mather and Daniel Gore also missed the match, with United drawing 3-3.

 

Garnacho, who has also been in under-23 squads this season, begun to find a bit of form in September.

He scored four goals in a two game stretch against Birmingham City and Newcastle, scoring three from open play and one from a direct free-kick.

The former Atletico Madrid youngster is just 17 and has a very bright future ahead of him.

Featuring at international level will give him another perspective to his development and he will return to United more confident for it.
