Video of the day: The day Man United whipped Real Madrid 3-1 before record crowd

In 2014, specifically on August 2, 109,318 spectators crammed into the Michigan Stadium to watch Manchester United beat Real Madrid 3-1 in the International Champions Cup.⁣

 

The attendance figure was (and still is) a record crowd for a soccer match played in the United States.⁣

Ashley Young scored twice and Javier Hernandez once in the emphatic pre-season win for the Red Devils. Gareth Bale scored what turned out to be a consolatory goal for Los Blancos.⁣

Ultimately none of them won the prestigious pre-season multi-national competition but the quality of football on offer was worth every penny for the record crowd on the day.
