Socceroo keeper Mat Ryan was part of Valencia’s 3-1 Copa Del Rey win overnight as interim coach Gary Neville gets set to take the reins of the La Liga club.
After a spell out injured Ryan is back between the posts as Cancelo cancelled out Arroyo’s 16th minute opener for Barakaldo in the round of 32 first leg clash.
Second half strikes to Gaya and Parejo sealed the win. They meet again on December 17 in game 2 in Valencia.
