Manchester United and Real Madrid played a friendly game in Santa Clara as a part of International Champions Cup.

Jose Mourinho’s men managed to take an advantage over Madrid in the dying minutes of the first half, as Anthony Martial brilliantly passed through the Champions League winners’ defense and passed the ball to Jesse Lingard who had nothing else but to put the ball into the empty net.
