Yes, we said we were on hiatus, but there was one final piece of news before the official international break began today…hey we don’t stop writing until our players stop making international headlines.
The News: Danny Szetela picked up his first minutes with Racing Santander’s first team when he started against Málaga on Wednesday.
Of Note: The 20-year-old midfielder cracked the starting lineup and played 66 minutes in Racing Santander’s 0-0 draw in the fourth round of the Copa del Rey. Szetela helped keep Málaga off the board in the away leg of the home-and-home while making his debut for the first team.
Up Next: After the international break, Racing returns home to take on Valencia in La Liga. The team will be looking to get back on track after falling, 0-1, last weekend at Deportivo la Coruña. The second leg against Málaga will be at home on January 2, 2008.
