Newcastle are trailing at half time by a single goal, which was scored after just 6 minutes.
Newcastle have a back four of youngsters on display, with an average age of just 21 with Edgar Taylor Bassong and Enrique making up the back-line.
Newcastle will need to increase the tempo of their game if they are get near to winning this, which they need to have any chance of winning this thing – the Summer Cup that is.
Here’s a detailed report of the first half.
It looks like Newcastle are playing Cacapa in a midfield defensive role with a back four of Edgar (20), Taylor (22), Bassong (21) and Enrique (22). Thatâ€™s an average age of about 21 for the back four â€“ weâ€™ll see how they do, with the old man Cacapa (32) in front of them.
6 mins – Would you believe it. After just 6minutes Real Mallorca have gone ahead as the unmarked Mario Suarez puts home a free kick out on the left that gave goalkeeper Harper no chance.
Not a good start for the young defense.
11 mins â€“ Young French central defender Bassong has under-hit a pass back to Harper and the goalkeeper has to come running out, and kicks the ball way into the stands â€“ itâ€™s a nervous start by Newcastle.
15 mins – Fernando Valero cut in from the outside left position and hits a shot that goes skyward â€“ not hit quite right by the 28 year-old Spaniard from 20 yeards out.
20 mins – Miner’s persistence wins a corner on the right which James takes himself, but it fails to beat the first man and Mallorca easily clear the ball. Newcastle are finding it hard to get going.
24 mins â€“ A deflected cross comes into the box but Jose Enrique clears up the danger nicely.
27 mins â€“ James Milner manages to get in a low center, which is well placed and whipped across, but 31 year old 6â€™1â€ central defender JosÃ© Carlos Nunes blasts the ball clear.
32 mins Milner gets in a wicked cross at the near post and Smith bravely goes in to get on the end of it, but is just beaten to the ball by Ramis, but the Mallorca defender receives treatment after a clash of heads with Smith â€“ but he seems OK to carry on. Good aggressive play by Alan Smith
38min â€“ Real Mallorca captain Juan Arango moves the ball forward and looks to pass it, but with the defense opening up in front of him he decides to shoot, but goes wide of Steve Harperâ€™s goal.
39 mins – Oscar Trejo then tries a shot, but it lacks any real speed or direction and Harper saves the shot with consummate ease.
41min – Milner’s trickery wins a corner off the shins of Arango on the left. The winger crosses and the unmarked Bassong should open his Toon account but sees his downward header bounce wide of the target.
43min – Valera tries a shot from distance and it deflects off Seb Bassong and is rolling slowly for a corner before David Edgar comes across to kick the ball downfield.
The half-time whistle goes and Newcastle are still trying to get into this game.
