Zidane did not blame the effects of travel or the climate for his side's slump but did explain his policy of rotation, which saw the Real boss use plenty of youth team players in the absence of some first team regulars, including Cristiano Ronaldo.

However, Zidane played down their goal-drought and backed the duo to turn the situation around in the start of the competitive season, with Real facing United before a two-legged Spanish Super Cup against Barcelona on 13 and 16 August.

Later in the afternoon, MLS Commissioner Don Garber held a press conference that opened with a breakdown of the adidas deal before widening to cover a variety of topics involving league business and development.

Atlanta United defender Greg Garza suffered a separated right shoulder in the opening minutes of the MLS All-Star Game.

This game was Los Blancos' last warm-up match before they face Jose Mourinho's Manchester United in the UEFA Super Cup on 8 August. The quartet of Karim Benzema, Gareth Bale, Mateo Kovacic, and Marcelo all buried their PKs to allow for no breathing room.

Never mind that this was the early days of the current MLS All-Star format, with the league's best and brightest against foreign sides of a certain acclaim. All you can do is entertain and hope the fans went home happy.

Only the host Chicago Fire have more players in the All-Star team, with four Fire players making the squad.

Dwyer headed home a rebound in the 87th minute off a header by the Chicago Fire's Dax McCarty to beat Zidane to tie the match and send it into penalty kicks to decide the winner.

Dani Ceballos' decadent through ball was calmly curled inside the far right post by Borja Mayoral to give Real Madrid a 1-0 lead.

The match started at a trot on a rainy night in Chicago, with the first legitimate chance coming at the 20-minute mark when Marco Asensio broke into the All Stars' penalty area and forced a close-range save from Tim Howard. For all their time on the ball, however, relying so heavily on Kaka to control the attack turned out to be counterproductive. However, it seems that one very important company believes in the league long-term: Adidas.

But it wasn't just his appearance creating the buzz; there was actual intrigue!

But a first occurred on Wednesday night - a Major League Soccer mid-season classic on the lakefront.
