Recreativo knocked off giants Real Madrid on the road at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium 3-0 today.
Now clearly a Fabio Capello influence has been felt by the ‘Galacticos’ but this defeat bordered on embarrassing.
Goals from Pongolle 35th, Uche 52nd, and a stunning free kick from Viqueira in the 90th minute sealed the win on a day of mourning for Recreativo who lost three supporters in a bus crash.
In Italy Inter Milan defeated Lazio 2-0 behind goals from Esteban Cambiasso and Marco Materazzi for their fifth consecutive shutout as they remain atop of the Serie A. They did it with ten men following Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s second yellow card and sending off.
Locally Davey Arnaud of Nederland and the Kansas City Wizards got the phone call to come into U.S. National team camp but impending surgery on his knee has cost him his chance this time.
Arnaud still had the time along with other MLs players to visit the Texas Childrens Hospital with me today.
Now that is class.
