Milan’s second-string side was defeated 3-0 in France by Caen in today’s friendly test.
The only bright spot of the game was the performance of goalkeeper Gabriel, who kept the scoreline down with a series of saves.
Without all the players on international duty, including the Under-21 and Under-19 teams, Coach Max Allegri had precious few figures to choose from.
This was a homecoming for Mbaye Niang, who joined Milan from Caen, while Riccardo Saponara and Jherson Vergara were able to play after long injury lay-offs.
It took just three minutes for Caen to break the deadlock with Appiah tapping in from a parried free kick.
The Rossoneri defence was disastrous throughout and Duhamel sprung the offside trap to beat Gabriel one-on-one.
Koita was also on his own against goalkeeper Gabriel after bursting down the right undisturbed.
