    MARBELLA, Spain – Mexico and the United Arab Emirates played to a 1-1 draw on Monday in an under-17 international friendly at the Marbella Football Center.  Both sides are preparing for the 2013 FIFA U-17 World Cup, which the UAE is hosting, October 17 - November 8.

     

    The CONCACAF champion enjoyed a bright start to the game and was rewarded with a goal in the 26th minute through the outstanding Marco Antonio Granados.

     

    Seven minutes after the break, Mexican central defender Pedro Terán was whistled for a foul against Zayed Al Amri in the penalty area.  Humaid Salmin converted the spot kick to make the score 1-1.

     

    Alejandro Diaz had a chance to put Mexico ahead, but his 70th minute effort was saved.

     

    In its second of three games in Spain, the Tricolor will face Uzbekistan on October 2, also in Marbella.
