MOST COMMENTED

Saturday's Galaxy-Chelsea game wasn't the only international friendly played over the weekend in the United States.

For the record, Tigres of Mexico won the World Series of Football with a 3-0 win over Suwon Blue Wings of South Korea in the first game of the doubleheader with the Galaxy-Chelsea game at the Home Depot Center.

Mexican star Cuauhtemoc Blanco scored in his Chicago Fire debut as the MLS club tie Scottish champion Celtic, 1-1, before 15,719 fans.

Playing without Freddy Adu, rumored to headed to Benfica of Portugal, Real Salt Lake beat Everton of England, 2-0, on goals by Carey Talley and Robbie Findley past Everton's U.S. keeper, Tim Howard, before 12,221 fans.

Mexico international Israel Lopez scored twice on free kicks to give Cruz Azul of Mexico a 3-1 win over Libertadores Cup champion Boca Juniors in the final of the inaugural Copa Panamericana in Glendale, Ariz.

The Mexico City team won the $250,000 first prize for capturing the six-team tournament. The game was the third on a four-game tour by Boca, which the Argentine sports daily Ole reported is interested in entering a team in MLS.

Also on tour were smaller clubs such as Tapatio, Guadalajara's second team, which played games in California on Friday night and Alabama on Sunday, Marquense of Guatemala, which wrapped up a four-game East Coast tour with a match against a Delaware all-star team, and Jaguares of Mexico and Municipal of Mexico, which played at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando.
