River Plate: 1 - Independiente: 1 - Torneo de Verano 2008

River Plate tied 1-1 with Independiente in their first game of the Torneo de Verano 2008.

In his debut as the club's coach, Diego Simeone decided to set-up a team that consisted of reserve players and youngsters. The following eleven started today:

Juan Marcelo Ojeda;
Danilo Gerlo-Mateo Musacchio-Cristian Nasuti-Cristian Villagra;
Damian Lizio-Nicolas Domingo-Matias Abelairas-Diego Buonanotte;
Sebastian Sciorilli-Marco Ruben;

The overall display wasn't anything spectacular, but one must realize that it was a completely secondary team. In fact, not many of these players will be on the first team in the coming season, if any at all.

Here are the highlights of the match:
