AS Roma 2 AC Milan 2

After some speculation about the starting lineup for this game, Beckham took the field for a full 88 minutes alongside fellow-legends Ronaldinho and Kaka and looked comfortable in the team and comfortable on the ball. He resumed his standard role on the right hand side of midfield pinging balls into the box but with little to aim for. In too many cases there were 2 against 6 in the Roma penalty box.
Roma took the lead after 22 minutes on their home ground and the game stultified into a sedentary affair with few chances to show for the efforts of the two teams - not maybe what one was expecting from Serie 'A football.
The second half offered more chances and importantly more goals. After just 3 minutes of the second half, Pato had a tap-in from Kaka to level the game, and just 4 minutes later, he lobbed the keeper from the left hand side to see the ball nestle in the far side of the goal for his and Roma's second. The game then started to pick up a little and in the 71st minute Roma pressure paid off with a fairly soft goal to level the game.
The second half lived up to expectations far more than the first paltry offering, but at 2-2 both teams were done and Beckham was replaced by Flamini with just two minutes to go
