American's help Rangers FC draw AC MILAN
Tonight Milan played a friendly at Ibrox Park against Glasgow Rangers. Rangers point of view it was a chance for a host of fringe players to get involved and the big plus was Maurice Edu who did well in midfield all night. Not much happened in the first half, with the only highlight coming from a Ronaldinho free kick that shaved the post. Rangers FC opened the score in the 66th minute through DaMarcus Beasley, who profited from a misunderstanding between Silva, who did not make the best of impressions tonight, and Darmian. It was his USA team mate Edu who set the chance with a good ball through.
Milan managed to tie the score just four minutes later through Pato, who had just come in to replace an ineffective Shevchenko, after Kaká wreaked havoc in the Rangers' defence. The 2007 Golden Ball winner then got himself on the score-sheet as well, giving Milan the lead with a terrific run and shot from inside the area in the 78th minute.
However, the home side managed to come back to make it 2-2 with a goal from defender Sasa Papac, who made a smart run into the area and beat Dida in the 81st minute.
