Real Madrid, Man United test talent before big crowd at Levi’s

SANTA CLARA — Manchester United and Real Madrid brought their prodigious talent to the Bay Area on Sunday in a summer soccer extravaganza known as the International Champions Cup. The preseason tournament featuring some of the world’s biggest soccer brands is more entertainment than serious sport. No matter. Whenever soccer royalty travels across the pond Americans become starstruck teenagers. Such was the case Sunday at Levi’s Stadium where 65,109 fans cheered their favorite clubs on an afternoon so hot officials stopped play for two water breaks. In the end, it devolved into a comedy with Manchester United winning 2-1 on penalties that saw seven players from both teams either miss or get blocked.
