    Anglo-Spanish Challenge

    Last seasons winners of La Liga and the Premier League are in CW Land for an exhibition game.

    The Game

    Both teams arrived at Clowich Stadium surrounded and were mobbed by an eager and football starved CWLand public.

    There was electricity and flash photography in the air as legends of the game stepped of their buses. One young girls broke through the barrier and gave Christiano Ronaldo a flower and a big hug.

    The fans were split into 3 distinct groups. Those shouting for United, those chanting "Madrid, Madrid" and those just thrilled that 2 of the greatest teams in the history of football were in their fair country.

    As game time approached the stadium was alive with noise. With still an hour before kick-off there wasn't an empty seat to be seen anywhere.

    The excited crowd shushed for the few minutes it took to announce that all proceeds of this game are to go to charity and announce the starting line-ups

    The teams sparred early on but a quick goal changed the tempo...

    Real looked completely uninterested it seems, either that or Man U played a blinder. Casillas had a poor game between the sticks too.
