Benfica 1-AC Milan 1 (5-4pks)

Onyewu

Onyewu

Oguchi Onyewu and AC Milan had a preseason game vs Freddy Adu’s former team Benfica.  Onyewu did not start, although he was projected to do so by goal.com, but he did enter in the 78th min.  While in Onyewu was easily the best defender on the pitch for Milan, including making a great tackle, and from what it seems he should be starting once he has more time to practice with the squad.  We should also expect a few goals from him, probably out of the air and from set pieces as he had another chance today that just missed. Here are the goals for each team, the second, an own goal after a great move by Pato happened soon after Onyewu entered the game:

and then the penalties:
