Foxboro, MA. - The 26,208 soccer fans in attendance got to witness some world class soccer on Sunday night as defending English Premier League champs Chelsea FC defeated European Champions League Finalists and Italian Serie A runners-up AC Milan by a score of 1-0 in Foxboro. The game was the first in a series of friendlies called the “World Series of Football” in which Chelsea face Milan twice, and the Chicago Fire faces Milan and DC United faces Chelsea.

Chelsea got on the board first in the 13th minute when Claude Makelele sent a pass to Arjen Robben at the top of the box. Robben turned and sent a hard shot past Milan keeper Dimitrios Eleftheropoulos.

Hernan Crespo had a great chance for Chelsea in the 28th minute, but his shot went wide from about 7 yards out after receiving a great pass from Robben in the box.

Chelsea had a scare in the38th minute when Geremi tried to clear it off the goal line, but it deflected off Clarence Seedorf of Milan and headed back towards goal. Chelsea ‘keeper Carlo Cudicini was there to clean up.

Shaun Wright-Phillips had a chance for Chelsea in the 65th minute, when Carlton Cole dribbled into the box and drew out the goalkeeper. Cole then passed back to Wright-Phillips outside of the box, but his shot was just wide of the open net.

Five minutes later Chelsea had a chance but Didier Drogba headed a great cross from close range over the bar.

AC Milan went down a man in the 90th minute when Gennaro Gattuso received a red card for taking out Chelsea’s Carlton Cole.
