VIDEO: United go down to Madrid in legends match

Yorke and Cole were reunited, as were some of the Galacticos, for the charity event at the Bernabeu last night.

A HOST OF former footballing superstars (and Quinton Fortune) turned out to take part in the Corazon Classic Match at the Bernabeu last night.

The game, which was staged in aid of Real Madrid’s ‘Real Foundation’ academies in Africa saw the La Liga champions field a team including Luis Figo, Roberto Carlos and Zinedine Zidane against a Manchester United Legends XI.

Ex-Liverpool striker Fernando Morientes side-footed a volley past Edwin van der Sar for the opener before nice footwork from Andy Cole set up Lee Sharpe, who repeated his famous shuffle to celebrate.

2001 World Player of the Year Figo showed he hasn’t lost it by curling the second into the top corner from 25 yards after receiving a pass from fellow Galactico Zidane.

Teddy Sheringham had the chance to level things up with a penalty but his shot was weak and the follow-up sailed over the bar.

Fernando Redondo put the home side further ahead before 46-year-old Sheringham, who did this to Gordon Ramsey last week, made up for his earlier miss with a neat chip.
