[INTERNATIONAL FRIENDLIES] The New York Red Bulls became the first MLS team to beat an English Premier League this summer when they downed Arsenal, 1-0, on Bradley Wright-Phillips' goal in the first half.

Top 20 U.S. Crowds: 2014

Wright-Phillips, the MLS's leading scorer, scored off a Thierry Henry corner kick for the game's lone goal in the first half. Gedion Zelalem, the 17-year-old midfielder who is reportedly seeking U.S. citizenship, started for the Gunners.

The match, which drew a sell-out crowd of more than 25,000 at Red Bull Arena, was the second between Arsenal and the Red Bulls. In 2011, they tied as the Red Bulls won Arsenal's Emirates Cup in Henry's first match against his former club after joining MLS.

The only other U.S. club to beat an EPL club this summer is NASL spring champion Minnesota United FC, a 2-0 winner over Swansea City.



Manchester United won the second game of its summer tour with a 3-2 win over Roma before more than 54,000 fans in Denver.

Wayne Rooney, who scored two goals in United's 7-0 win over the LA Galaxy at the Rose Bowl, added two more goals -- the first with a blast from 25 yards -- and set up Juan Mata for a third as United raced out to a 3-0 lead.

The game was highlighted by a goal by Roma's Bosnian star, Miralem Pjanic, from more than 55 yards late in the game. Francesco Totti made it 3-2 from the penalty spot with two minutes to go.



-- Inter Milan beat Real Madrid, 3-2, in a shootout after their match ended in a 1-1 tie. The game at the University of California in Berkeley, Calif., drew more than 63,000 fans despite the absence of most of Real Madrid's stars. All games in the
Guinness International Champions Cup end in a result so penalty kicks followed the end of 90 minutes.




-- Emerson Hyndman, the grandson of Schellas Hyndman, started for Fulham, but another 18-year-old, Frenchman Moussa Dembele, stole the show for the Cottagers with a hat trick to lead Fulham to a 3-0 win over D.C. United at Jacksonville's EverBank Field.

The match drew 52,961 fans as it marked the unveiling of the world's biggest video board. Many of them had come for the post-game entertainment: a concert by country music superstar Carrie Underwood.

    Sell-out crowd at Red Bull NY v. Arsenal? WHAT??? The stadium was half empty. Check out the video.

    Karl, the video doesn't tell the truth. there were few empty seats but I would say the stadium was more than 90% full. I was there. And by the way, "sold out" means all tickets were sold, regardless who decided to show up. Outside the stadium, there were a lot of scalpers but apparently, they were not able to re-sell all their tickets. Plus, it's always the case on MLS. Not all tickets' buyers show up. In particular, the promotional (corporate) tickets.

    Oh sorry I misread, the article said "Became the first MLS team to beat an English premier league team THIS SUMMER" Apologize.

    Watching a game from that outdoor upper deck pool looks, uh, pretty cool. To use a pun. The Cottagers fans would never be able to do that comfortably in Southwest London. It's like being at the beach or at a big hotel field while being in the stadium live. Only in America.

    Good RB effort, but I wouldn't get too excited NYRB fans, Arsenal played at best 75% effort. To date, it's hard to figure out this RB team so far this season ; they have 20 minute spurts in each half, and it takes at least an 80 minute effort to win.
