It’s another blow for AC Milan suffering the second defeat in the International Champions Cup.  AC Milan losing against Manchester City in such a bad way that it pains me to report it.   AC Milan conceded 4 goals in  the first 26 minutes!  I could not believe my eyes at all and believe me I just wanted to transform myself into a footballer to jump to the pitch and play!!!

Apart from actual raining, it appears goals were just pouring.  It is just unbelievable!  Milan had the chance to score first in the 2nd minute with defender Alex following a corner after the headed assist by forward Stephan El Shaarawy.

The nightmare starting in the 11th minute  with the ex Fiorentina forward Stephan Jovetic defeating AC Milan goalkeeper Michael Agazzi after the assist by Jesus Navas from the right wing.  Milan’s defense running out of gas.  Then, the unthinkable, 2 minutes after BAM!  A second goal in the 13th minute by Scott Sinclair getting the assist by Gael Clichy with a cross!  what a chaos!.

The cold shower and very cold shower arriving in the 23rd minute when Jovetic providing the assist for Jesus Navas  score the third goal of the match!   No umbrella to protect Milan from this debacle.  The ball deflected by AC Milan midfielder Andrea Poli….

Say no more….  imagine just 3 minutes after the 3rd goal, there it comes another goal to make it  3-0.   It was a shameful, embarrassing Milan  disappointing the fans in the United States who wanted to see their “used to be top level team,” and today only a shadow.

And where were Milan’s defenders?  Vacationing?  Anyway, in the 32nd minute  forward Stephan El Shaarawy attempt a headed shot on goal only to saved by Mancheser City goalkeeper Willy Caballero.

AC Milan gaining a fresh air when midfielder Sulley Muntari defeated Manchester City goalkeeper Caballero with a headed shot from a corner!

It seems even the sky was crying out loud because the rain forced the game to be delayed for 20 minutes….  sure,  the heavens were crying unable to watch this poor Milan being so mediocre leaving their winning DNA who knows where!!!!!

Far from AC Milan returning stronger, it is Manchester City to increase the score with Jovetic scoring in the 58th minute.  By now, I was already upset, big time!!!!!   We might argue that  Milan defense is at fault because the technique displayed by Jovetic showed a weak defender Adil Rami as the ball went over before the shot!

Inzaghi tried even forward Mario Balotelli since the 45th minute replacing El Shaarawy. Yet,  Balotelli also failing to score.

The next game is against Liverpool on Sunday 2 August  at the   Bank Of America Stadium, Charlotte, NC.   Who can save this Milan?

Here is AC Milan official starting lineup by coach Filippo Inzaghi:

AC Milan: Agazzi; Mattia De Sciglio, Alex, Rami, Constant; Poli, Cristante, Muntari (c); Honda, Niang, Stephan El Shaarawy.


Here is Manchester City official starting lineup by coach Manuel Pellegrini:
