Cristiano Ronaldo put home two goals last night, as Spanish powerhouse Real Madrid demolished Italian giants AC Milan in a friendly match at Yankee Stadium, 5-1. However, the play on the field was not the story.

The story of this match was the sell out crowd in the Bronx, with 49,474 packing Yankee Stadium to witness the match between two of Europe’s most decorated clubs.

Now, I’ve mentioned this summer how popular these exhibition matches have been across the country. Last night’s match not only proved that to be true, but took that popularity to an entirely different level. Think about it, this match sold out Yankee Stadium. The Yankees don’t even do that anymore. Yet people still pretend that Americans don’t care about soccer?

Other goals for Madrid were scored by Angel Di Maria, Sergio Ramos, and Jose Callejon. Milan’s lone goal came from Robinho. Madrid outshot Milan 27-8, as Milan showed that it missed striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic who was transferred to Paris Saint-Germain this summer.

Real Madrid opens their Spanish league schedule on August 19, while AC Milan starts Italian play on August 26.
