Zidane star of Corazón Classic Match

4 years ago

The Corazón Classic Match brought together at the Bernabéu legends of Real Madrid and of Manchester United. The Spanish side won 3-2. Beforehand there was a guard of honour for the Real Madrid Castilla boys to celebrate them winning promotion, and Bolton midfielder Fabrice Muamba performed the ceremonial kick-off.

Real Madrid`s goals were scored by Morientes (7th minute); Figo (10th) and Redondo (69th). Manchester United`s came from Sharpe (8th) and Sheringham (79th).

The Real Madrid stadium was celebrating a festive day but also one of nostalgia, for on the turf could be seen legendary world class footballers who in their day wore the shirts of Real Madrid or of Manchester United. More than 65,000 spectators turned up to watch the game.

Amancio Amaro, in charge of the Real Madrid team, picked a starting line-up of Buyo, Chendo, Hierro, Sanchís, Roberto Carlos, Zidane, Redondo, Martín Vázquez, Butragueño, Morientes and Figo. The biggest ovation of the night came, as one might expect, in the 83rd minute when Zinedine Zidane went off.

In charge of the opposition, Bryan Robson picked Van der Sar, Irwin, Lee Martin, Johnsen, Fortune, Blomqvist, Lee Sharpe, Sheringham, Andy Cole, Dublin and Yorke.
