Atlético Madrid steal the thunder from Zlatan, Rooney & co.
Atletico Madrid were too string against the MLS All-Star side in Ortlando despite the US based side boasting the likes of Zlatan and Carlos Vela in their ranks.
The game everyone was waiting for finally arrived where Major League Soccer stars face LaLiga runner-ups, Atletico Madrid, a night where all eyes were on the potential partnership between Carlos Vela and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
It took the MLS team a while to gel and the lack of playing time together was apparent as Diego Simeone's side imposed themselves on the match.
Atletico finally took the lead before the break with Marcos Llorente scoring his first goal for "Los Rojiblancos". Continuous changes after the interval affected the flow of the action but Atleti finally put the game beyond doubt with Joao Felix and Diego Costa bagging Atleti's second and third respectively as the clock ticked down in Orlando.
