Spain's new under-21 side defeated Yugoslavia in the Spanish enclave of Ceuta on Tuesday night. Iñaki Saéz finally managed to put out a side with Reyes joining Fernando Torres in attack after the Sevilla striker missed his first two call-ups through injury. However Dani was unavailable after limping off in the Betis match at the weekend, and the manager took the opportunity to call up Real Madrid's Portillo for his first ever international appearance. Spain opened the scoring early on after Albiol put Fernando Torres through in the penalty area, the Atlético striker pulling the ball across for Reyes to head down past Poleksic. Seven minutes later Torres made it two, turning in a cross from Raúl Bravo, who was playing further forward than his usual position at Real Madrid. Yugoslavia got one back ten minutes before the break when Jokic headed home a corner, but that was the end of the scoring and the two managers used the second half to try out new players.
