Jude Bellingham scored the first thing of his Real Madrid career as the Spanish titans defeated Manchester United 2- 0 in apre-season friendly in Houston on Wednesday.
English midfielder Bellingham, who joined Madrid from Borussia Dortmund in a 114 million USD transfer in June, opened his account with an exquisite finish after just six twinkles.
An eye- catching palm over Arsenal heightened prospects, but United were sluggish in the face of Jude Bellingham, Luka Modric, Eduardo Camavinga and Aurelien Tchouameni.
Andre Onana made his first appearance for United, just days after arriving from Inter Milan for around £ 47million, but it was £ 115m man Bellingham who came out on top in just his alternate game for Madrid.
Running onto a fine long ball forward from Antonio Rudiger, Bellingham took a touch, swivled on the spot and minced Onana inside five twinkles. It limited a poor start from United, who lost teenager Kobbie Mainoo to injury shortly after kick- off.
United slightly laid a cutlet on Madrid in the first half, though the Spanish titans were also unfit to turn their dominance into a alternate thing, but bettered after the break.
Bruno Fernandes, Alejandro Garnancho and Antony all went near, while Eder Militao had a late title saved off the line, as Madrid earned a justified palm in Houston as Joselu sealed the palm with a stunning outflow kick.
Madrid protector Antonio Rudiger caught the United defence napping with a superbly ladened ball that transferred Bellingham bearing down on thing.
The 20- time-old took one touch to control and also lifted a delicate chip over on- rushing United goalkeeper Andre Onana to give Madrid a justified lead.
Brazilian transnational Vinicius Jr. might have doubled the Madrid lead shortly latterly but scuffed his shot from eight yards out to let United off the hook.
United, meanwhile, nearly got back on position terms after 36 twinkles, but Marcus Rashford was just unfit to find the target from a tight angle.
With Madrid in control, United’s frustration boiled over shortly before half- time when Lisandro Martinez rattled into Bellingham with a wild attack. Bellingham replied angrily, and Martinez earned a booking for the challenge.
After a flurry of changes at half- time, United looked bettered after the break, but Madrid created the better chances, with Militao nearly making it 2- 0 on 69 twinkles only to see his shot cleared off the line.
Madrid eventually made the game safe in the 89th nanosecond, with Lucas Vazquez crossing for stager forward Joselu to light up the NRG Stadium with a stunning outflow kick for 2- 0. Know More Latest Football News…
