We may have gotten plenty of great league and cup football back this weekend – The fantastic Community shield match between Manchester United and City yesterday, with a brilliant Man U comeback and one Nani ready to make the next step as he continues his chase to become Cristiano Ronaldo. We had another derby, also in China, for the Supercoppa Italiana. Another comeback, as AC Milan, with much less flair and style, took down Inter. We got the Bundesliga back, and the wonderful Dortmund. We got Ligue 1 back, which was actually a bit boring.
The most amazing match, despite being a friendly, was held in China as well. Real Madrid, wrapping up their Asian tour, played against 109(!!!) Chinese kids. Guangzhou children to be exact. Why 109, you ask? Because of the club’s 109 years of course. Real Madrid won, of course, like they did against the adults throughout their tour, but probably gave the children an experience they’ll always remember.
