Rui Costa bags a brace as AC Milan’s legends lost 4-3 to their Real Madrid peers (video)

Sunday saw a star-studded exhibition match at the Santiago Bernabeu as Real Madrid’s old boys grouped together to take on their AC Milan counterparts.

Some of the legends in the Los Blancos line-up included Luis Figo and French World Cup winners Christian Karembeu and Zinedine Zidane, while Englishman Steve McManaman also got a place on the Real bench. The Italians also called up a selection of stars from yesteryear including Franco Baresi, Paolo Maldini, Rui Costa and Marco Simone.

The match was played at a surprisingly fast pace, with the Rossoneri racing into a 2-nil lead through goals from Simone and Rui Costa.

Real levelled through Butragueno and Amavisca in the opening 45, while after the break Alfonso put Real 3-2 up, Rui Costa netted his brace for 3-3, while Alfonso’s penalty towards the close of the match ended the game 4-3 for the hosts.
