The U.S. under-20 men's national team took on some of Madrid's top young talent. The Americans put three goals past Real Madrid C, but that total was match by a 16-year-old Portuguese dubbed the new Cristiano Ronaldo in the Madrid team's 5-3 win. The next day, FC Dallas keeper Josh Lambo held off Atletico Madrid B and earned the U-20s a 0-0 tie.

The U.S. under-20 men's national team lost to Real Madrid C, 5-3, and tied Atletico Madrid B, 0-0, in the first two games during its stay in Madrid.

MLS players Jorge Flores (Chivas USA), Tristan Bowen (Los Angeles Galaxy) and Abdus Ibrahim (Toronto FC) scored for the USA. Alipio, a 16-year-old Portuguese dubbed the new Cristiano Ronaldo, had a hat trick in the first half for Real Madrid C, the club's third team, which plays in Spain's Tercera Division (fourth level).

FC Dallas keeper Josh Lambo made six saves in helping the Americans earn a tie with Atletico B, the second team, which plays in the Segunda Division B (third level).
