Milan closes the first half, ahead by two goals. In the second half he suffered the reversal of Real with a brace from Valverde and a goal in the final from Vinicius
Romero's left-footed jewel is not enough, a goal against Dybala, to be clear, against Milan, defeated in a comeback (3-2) by Real Madrid. Only the Rossoneri play in the first half: Tomori scores with a header (mocking Militao) from a corner kick taken by Pulisic, doubles the young Argentine – who arrived on a free transfer from Lazio – with a shot that ends up under the cross. A network from the development of a corner and another with a shot from outside.
Two splendid news for Stefano Pioli's new Milan. If I want to stay or go to play? I want to stay here for the season, I can learn a lot here. The goal? I kicked like I know how to do…, said the former biancoceleste. Of course, Real Madrid wakes up in the second half and overturns the match. The first two goals of the Blancos come from kind gifts from Sportiello and Tomori. In the 2-1 Valverde mocked Sportiello; in 2-2 Tomori outgoing to miss a pass. Vinicius' trio: Rafael Leao loses the ball in midfield and Kjaer is not flawless on a pass from Modric. But beyond the knockout, which was acceptable at the start of the season in a summer friendly against a team like Carletto Ancelotti's, there are already good signs for Pioli.
First, the presence of Loftus-Cheek in between you hear, Secondly, Pulisic is already useful in delicate situations such as set pieces. Finally, he convinced the "little" defender Simic, born in 2005. He played starter in place of Gabbia, who will go on loan to Villarreal. I like Milan a lot. Strong players have arrived: Pulisic, Loftus-Cheek, Reijnders, I like how they are fitting in. Pioli's words will allow us to play even more technical, even more offensive football. And again: After 10 days I saw interesting things, such as how we tried to move the ball, personality. What will change from last year? We occupy different positions but the principles of the game are the same. Romero? entered very well. Not just for the goal. Meanwhile, Okafor arrived in Los Angeles while Milan was at the Rose Bowl: a striker who can play in multiple roles, young but has already shown his worth. He has shots, speed, one-on-one, for me he can be a forward or left fielder. A true judgment to be given only when I coach him, concluded Pioli.
