United edges Real in penalty shootout
Santa Clara, US - David de Gea showed Real Madrid what it is missing by playing the hero act for Manchester United as it won 2-1 on penalties after a 1-1 International Champions Cup draw in California, US, on Sunday.
The Spain international saved spot-kicks from Mateo Kovacic and Oscar before Casemiro hit the crossbar with his shootout kick - having scored from 12 yards in normal time - to hand United victory.
United took the lead shortly before half-time thanks to a sensational piece of play from Anthony Martial, the forward jinking away from Dani Carvajal, Luka Modric and Lucas Vazquez to give Jesse Lingard the simplest of finishes at the back post.
Casemiro levelled from the penalty spot after Victor Lindelof could only stop a rampaging Theo Hernandez by crashing into him before the Brazilian missed the decisive penalty in a poor shoot-out.
United remain unbeaten in the four matches it has played on its tour of the US, while the first pre-season match for Zinedine Zidane's men ended in defeat. The clubs will soon clash again in the UEFA Super Cup in Skopje next month.
