Manchester United’s U21 squad have learned their group opponents for the Premier League International Cup.
Warren Joyce’s side will compete in group B against Middlesbrough, Sparta Prague and holders Villarreal with all three games to be played in England. Exact fixture dates and venues are still to be confirmed.
Only the group winners are guaranteed a place in the knockout stages, along with the two best second-placed sides.
This is the first time United have entered the tournament and the games will be played alongside the regular Premier League 2 fixtures.
