A few weeks ago, my boyfriend and I went to see a friendly soccer match between AC Milan and Manchester United. AC Milan is my boyfriend’s favorite team ever, they’re from Italy. Manchester United is a team from England. I like AC Milan, though they aren’t my favorite.
Originally, they were supposed to play in Pasadena, California at the Rose Bowl which is about 20 minutes from where I live. Unfortunately, due to low ticket sales, they moved the game to a smaller stadium, Stub Hub Center in Carson. This was such a hassle for me because this stadium is over an hour away from my home.
We went to the game for my boyfriend’s birthday. We both wore our Leonardo Bonucci Milan jerseys. I was lucky that I didn’t have to drive us to the game that day because it was a weekday and there was so much traffic. We got to the game on time and there was a lot of people surprisingly. Most of the people there were rooting for Manchester United. I noticed that casual soccer fans tend to root for the English teams thinking they are much better, but that’s not usually the case.
Anyways, the game was really good. AC Milan did not win unfortunately. The game had ended in a tie, so they went to penalties. Penalty shootout went on for a long time! Everyone had a turn, even the goal keepers 😂 It’s always fun to see teams from Europe come and play friendlies here during the summer.
