Swansea v Porto, PL International Cup

Wenderson Galeno scores only goal in semi-final of PL International Cup

A second-half goal from Porto's Wenderson Galeno denied Swansea City a place in the final of the Premier League International Cup and ended their hopes of a treble.

The forward struck at the Liberty Stadium just before the hour for the only goal, coming in unmarked to convert a cross.

Swansea had chances to equalise, most notably through Adam King, but were unable to send the tie to extra-time.

Porto will meet the winner of the other semi-final, Norwich City v Sunderland, which takes place on Friday 31 March.

After securing the Premier League 2 Division 2 title, Swansea can still claim a double with the Premier League Cup, where they face Brighton & Hove Albion, in the quarter-finals on 3 April.
