Borini and Bonaventura star as first team win friendly 8-1

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan head coach Marco Giampaolo used the international break to organise a friendly between the remaining members of the first team squad and the U18 side.

The match was played at 10:30am CET at Milanello and, as expected, finished heavily in favour of the first team as they beat Mister Terni’s U18s by a scoreline of 8-1.

The game lasted for 60 minutes and was played on a smaller sized pitch, with Simone Bassoli scoring for the junior side.

The goalscorers for Milan were as follows: Fabio Borini (2), Luan Capanni, Marco Brescianini, Samu Castillejo, Davide Calabria, Giacomo Bonaventura and Giacomo Olzer.

The team will now have two days off before returning on Tuesday 10th September for a session at 16:30 CET.

The Rossoneri are on an early season break after Saturday’s 1-0 win over Brescia at San Siro, with a round of international fixtures both in Europa and in South America, amongst others. 

As a result, 15 players were called up for international duty by their respective countries, as per the club’s official website.
