Two goals from new signing AJ Leitch-Smith earned Vale a creditable 2-2 draw with La Liga side Getafe.
In a lively first-half, Leitch-Smith opened the scoring on seven minutes before Wanderson equalised just a minute later.
The visitors had Pedro Leon sent-off for violent conduct after he elbowed Colin Daniel in the face and Leitch-Smith scored his second to put Vale into a 2-1 interval lead.
Getafe equalised on 70 minutes but a 2-2 draw against Spanish top-flight opposition is a creditable effort from the Valiants.
Vale: Johnson, Yates, Duffy (Purkiss), Streete (Dickinson), McGivern, Birchall, Brown (Grant), Foley (Andoh), Dodds (O’Connor), Leitch-Smith (Ikpeazu), Daniel (Kelly)
