Chelsea claims bragging rights

MOST COMMENTED

Sunday was a big day for English club Chelsea. Captain John Terry confirmed he was staying at Chelsea, spurning an offer from Manchester City, and the Blues clinched the World Football Challenge with a 2-0 win over Mexico's Club America before 57,229 fans at Jerry World -- Jerry Jones' new Dallas Cowboys Stadium dubbed a stadium like no other in the world by Chelsea star Andriy Shevchenko.

Franco DiSanto and Florent Malouda scored in a two-minute span in the second half to give Chelsea the win.

The game was marred by a thunderstorm that damaged the "SportsCenter" set of ESPN Deportes outside the stadium.

The crowd gave Chelsea an average of 68,736 fans for its four-game tour -- almost as large as the average of 67,874 for Manchester United's 2003 tour.

Diego Milito twice to give Inter Milan a 2-0 win over Serie A rival AC Milan before a crowd of 42,531 in Foxborough, Mass., in the other World Football Challenge finale.
