AC Milan tops Chelsea 1-0 at Sun Life Stadium
Emanuelson's goal leads AC Milan past Chelsea
Urby Emanuelson scored in the 69th minute to lift AC Milan to a 1-0 victory over Champions League winner Chelsea in an exhibition match Saturday night.
Emanuelson dribbled unmarked deep toward the Chelsea penalty area and, as defenders closed in, he sent a pass toward the left wing to Stephan El Shaarawy. Shaarawy returned an immediate pass to Emanuelson, who beat Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech with a shot near the 6-yard box.
Eden Hazard had Chelsea's best attempt to tie it with 4 minutes remaining in regulation. Hazard's free kick near from the half circle sailed a couple of feet above the crossbar.
The match at Sun Life Stadium was played before 57,748 fans, the highest of the 2012 Herbalife World Football Challenge and second-best for a soccer game in the stadium's history.
