Emilio Renteria and Dilly Duka hit for the Crew (13-13-8), who missed out on securing the Eastern Conference title and home field advantage.

Cristiano Ronaldo will be the headliner when Real Madrid meets Glasgow Celtic in Saturday's World Football Challenge at Lincoln Financial Field. Ronaldo also appeared in Philadelphia last season when Real Madrid faced the Union. A broader question is whether Ronaldo's appearance stateside could one day be a common occurrence. He was quoted recently saying that he would consider playing in Major League Soccer later in his career. With celebrated players such as David Beckham making MLS their home, nothing should be considered unrealistic.

Cristiano Ronaldo had it all on Thursday: the deft touches, the blazing runs with the ball, the sulking, the petulance - and, in the end, that golden scoring touch to send Portugal into the European Championship semifinals with a 1-0 win over the Czech Republic in Warsaw, Poland. After bouncing two earlier attempts off the post, Ronaldo scored on a powerful header in the 79th minute off a cross by Joao Moutinho - a shot straight at the ground and up past the flailing hands of Czech goalkeeper Petr Cech.

Listen to Eagles chief operating officer Don Smolenski explain the inner workings of a deal that returns Real Madrid to Philadelphia, and it sounds like love at first sight. From the time Real walked off with a 2-1 win over the Union in July at Lincoln Financial Field, Smolenski wanted the Spanish League champions back - as soon as possible. After nearly a year of exhaustive phone conversations, conference calls, and meetings via Skype, Smolenski finally got his wish. The Eagles will announce Tuesday that Real Madrid returns to take on Scottish Premier League champion Celtic on Aug. 11 as part of the World Football Challenge.
