2004 - ManU v AC milan

2004.07.31 Giants stadium...Manchester United v AC Milan...
Our first opportunity to two international powerhouse teams...Andy Shevchenko deflected a free kick in the 90th minute as AC Milan to tie the game at 1-1. AC Milan went on to defeat ManU, 9-8 in penalty kicks...The final penalty kick was taken by former Metrostar and ManU goalkeeper Tim Howard, whose shot would hit off the let post...

Paul Scholes gave ManU the lead in the 33rd minute. Alessandro Nesta tried to knock down David Bellion's cross into the penalty area, but side-footed the ball into the middle, where Scholes ran onto the ball and blasted the shot past Milan keeper Dida.

The game was exciting, the crowd was unruly before the game even started, a great experience at international soccer in New Jersey...
