Barcelona lost 3-2 to Mexican side Club America in a friendly game in the United States.

Lamine Yamal scored the opening goal in this game, but he admitted after the game that he needs to improve.

The teenager had a good game and scored a beautiful goal early in the first half, and created some more chances until he was subbed off just after the hour mark.

The 16-year-old lost the ball 8 times, and he admits it’s something he must improve on.

“I lost a few balls today [against Club America], I have to improve that,” Lamine Yamal told the media.

While assessing the game, Xavi said: “We’ve had a great game [with Club America].

“Both teams generated great chances. A lot of young players played for us, that’s a positive.

“This type of a match is positive for Barcelona. Our [financial] situation requires us to adapt. In the end, we offer ourselves to the fans in the United States. They always receive us with affection.”

Meanwhile, Barcelona will receive €5m for travelling to Dallas mid-season for this friendly game.
