Marcelino shared the minutes between all of the squad

Javi Jimenez spent the second half playing in central midfield

Marcelino ensured that every player had 30 minutes apiece in Riyadh. Due to the adverse weather conditions in the local area, owing to a sand storm, the game was cut to just an hour long. Due to the high temperatures, however, rotating was already very much part of his plan for Wednesday.

After returning to action last weekend, following seven months on the sideline due to a serious knee injury, Javi Jiménez featured in central midfield alongside Dani Parejo in the second half. The fans present were happy to get the chance to see all of their Valencia CF idols during Fahad Al Hurifi’s testimonial, with the likes of Del Piero, Deco, Hernan Crespo and Ronaldinho also involved for Al-Nassr.
