After some time away due to School I am back to relaunch Stars and Strikes just in time for the world cup. I am hoping to be able to bring back all of the old readers since we had some real good conversations going. Anyone who has requests or advice let me know and I will try and make this site as good as it was before if not better.

Real Madrid’s new stars were all on show in their impressive 5-1 win over Toronto FC. Goals were scored by Raul at 13′ and 26′, Ronaldo at 18′, Benzema at 65′, and Robben at 85′ for Madrid. For Toronto the lone goal was scored by Gala at 75′. Kaka was all over the field while he was in taking a few shots and Xabi Alonso subbed in early in the second half for Ronaldo.
There was a FK from the top of the box for Madrid late in the first half that Ronaldo lined up to take and the crowd got very excited with camera flashes going off all over. Much to the dismay of the fans an other Madrid player, Guti, standing right next to the ball crept up and tried to sneak one in unsuccessfully while all attention was on Ronaldo. Needless to say the crowd was very unhappy. The Ronaldo goal was not too impressive and probably should have been saved but the crowd was very pleased to see a Ronaldo goal anyway…
Later in the game Ronaldo was chasing down a lead pass up the sideline and seems to have a clear path to the goal when out of nowhere Marvell Wynne just flew past him from out of nowhere and took the ball away. An extremely impressive play by Wynne against the worlds most expensive player. Wynne has made an appearance with the National Team this year and is a young player that we expect to have major impact in the future, and possibly make the World Cup Team.
Who did you think looked good? What did you think of all the attackers for Real Madrid?
UPDATE: 5-1 Final for Real Madrid on Raul goals in 13th and 25th min, Ronaldo goal in the 19th min, Benzema goal in 66th min, and Robben in 86th min! Alonso subbed in for Ronaldo at 62nd min. Toronto goal in 76th min by Gala.
Real Madrid may be debuting their new star studded lineup in the MLS on ESPN tonight:
“According to AS, Madrid and Pellegrini are not obliged by the contract of their tour to field all their megastar signings but the Chilean trainer nevertheless is expected to summon, for the first time, the Cristiano Ronaldo, Kaka and Karim Benzema attacking trident.
However, “El Ingeniero” would not guarantee who will be playing when he simply said during a press conference that there’s a “big possibility” Kaka and Xabi will debut as a Blanco in Friday’s friendly against Toronto FC.”
