A Golazo, A Disappointment & Today’s Training

27 Jul

Satellite (14)Real Madrid played their first match of the pre-season against Inter Milan yesterday in the International Champions Cup.

Unfortunately, it ended up with a loss after the match went to penalties. But G-money scored a stonking golazo in the 10th minute. Sadly, it was not enough.

Keeping with the Bale theme, the  mothership had a behind the scenes video following Gareth throughout his day.

The Mister gave his assessment of the match in his presser afterwards.

Ancelotti: “We played very well in attack during the first half”

“Bale has a great attitude and is working really well”, said the manager.

Carlo Ancelotti evaluated his team’s opening game against Inter Milan. The Italian manager seemed to be satisfied with his side’s display during the first 45 minutes: “We played very well in attack during the first half, we dominated the game and had fresh legs. It was a very intense match with a lot of strong tackling”.

“I am satisfied with how the younger players performed because some of them showed some real character. We are working day-to-day and today I gave minutes to those that needed them”.

“He is working well and has a great attitude. He will improve and this will be a very different campaign for him, especially in terms of the start of the seasons, as he didn’t have a pre-season last year”.

James Rodríguez
“He will join us on 1 August. He is a very young player and his signing is an investment for the club’s future”.

“I am satisfied with how the younger players performed.”

“We are very happy about the support we are getting from the fans. It is great for the team and it is nice to play these kinds of games in front of crowds like this. It is good to know that we have fans like these all over the world”.

Di María
“I don’t have any news. There are no updates from the market. Di María is resting after the World Cup. He will return on 5 August to train with the rest of his teammates”.

The central forward
“Benzema is very reliable and we can also use players like Isco, who can act as a false nine. We are not looking for another striker because we don’t need one”.

Pre-season in the USA
“There are good facilities here and being able to train is not a problem. It is the ideal place to do pre-season”.

Those left behind yesterday managed to spend some quality time socializing and not always with the right people.

Your life choices, Cris. Examine them.

The Beebs looks hella stoned. And Cristiano, that smirk? I can’t even. I can almost hear you giggling inside.

And it looks like Drunk!Cap’n!Xabi made an appearance last night while the boys were out with Dontaye Draper.tumblr_n9c0pha85w1rjrrfho1_500Where do you think he got that hat? Did he mug the Captain & Tennille in a dark alley or something? Or is it a subtle shout out to Stevie who he refers to as The Skipper. I really hope more pictures of Drunk!Xabi surface.

Whatever hijinks they got up to last night, everyone was right back out on the pitch today. Cristiano trained on his own.
