Preseason exhibition roundup

Let's take a look at how some new faces fared in some early action with their new clubs:
  • Word is Cristiano Ronaldo didn't dazzle at all in his Real Madrid debut against the Shamrock Rovers. Though Karim Benzema did score a late goal in the 1-0 win.

  • Manchester United got another goal -- albeit another easy one -- from Michael Owen in a 2-0 win against a Malaysia XI. The Red Devils also got one -- another easy one -- from Macheda, who Fergie tips to be the next star at Old Trafford.

  • Lastly, Cisse had a nice goal with his new club. His just happens to be a bit out of the mainstream, at Panathinaikos.
Always interesting to see how booms/busts might fare in the upcoming season.
