        </div> on penalties Manchester United celebrating after beating Real Madrid on penalties

Two European Giants (although this term is used loosely with Manchester United in the fray) Real Madrid

and Manchester United battled it out in a just ended ICC cup match in the States.

With the game deadlocked at the end of normal time, a penalty shoot out was required to determine who would progress into the next phase of the tournament and oh boy were we in for a treat.

Anthony Martial did provide a beautiful assist in an attempt to run at the Real defence with the perhaps Marcelo representing the only real challenge in terms of experience; the latter who was unable to block a shot by Jesse Lingard to allow Manchester United take a deserved lead.

Carlos Henrique José Francisco Venâncio Casimiro, Casemiro for short captained a less experienced Real side and was able to convert a spot kick to make it one all. It ended in a stale mate and what ensured could only be described as one of the worst penalty shoot-outs you would ever have to see
