Villarreal steals show with golazo
[GUINNESS INTERNATIONAL CHAMPIONS CUP] Real Madrid and Chelsea won matches Thursday to complete play in the quarterfinals of the Guinness International Champions
Cup, but the highlight of the evening was a golazo from U.S. U-20 Jose Villarreal's 3-1 loss to Real Madrid at the University of Phoenix Stadium.
Villarreal's goal came with a patented left-footed shot after he took a clearance, beat two Real Madrid defenders with two touches to his left and then unleashed a rocket into the far corner.
Frenchman Karim Benzema led Real Madrid with two goals off the bench.
Chelsea beat Inter Milan, 2-0, in front of 41,983 fans at
Indianapolis' Lucas Oil Stadium, the largest crowd ever to watch a soccer crowd in Indiana.
Oscar (assisted by Victor Moses) and Eden Hazard (after Moses was fouled for a penalty) scored for the Blues
