So this is what one of the world's best soccer teams looks like. Real Madrid came to Philadelphia demonstrating the pace, the touch, the teamwork and, more important, the skill that has made it such an international soccer power. Despite Real Madrid's abundance of talent, the Union hung in there admirably before losing a 2-1 decision Saturday night in the World Football Challenge before 57,305 at Lincoln Financial Field. Real Madrid dominated the first half, while the Union had the better of the second half, especially the last 20 minutes.

THERE ARE FEW TIMES when one can say a loss speaks volumes in favor of the loser. But it can be said emphatically in the case of the Union. In front of a raucous crowd of 57,305 at Lincoln Financial Field Saturday night, the litmus test that was a 2-1 loss to Spanish power Real Madrid proved the Union can hang with the world's best - even if it took a little time to get up to speed. "It was definitely a challenge, but I think we responded well," said Union manager Peter Nowak.

Yaya Toure scored in the 52d minute as Manchester City ended Manchester United's chances of winning three trophies in the same season, beating its local rival, 1-0, at Wembley Stadium in London on Saturday to reach its first FA Cup final in 30 years. The result left United, the Premier League leaders, still in contention for the domestic championship and Champions League. Toure scored after intercepting a poor clearance by United's Michael Carrick. United was reduced to 10 men in the 72d minute when Paul Scholes drew a red card for a dangerous lunge.

Even after more than a century of achievement, one fact succinctly summarizes Real Madrid's status in soccer. Ten of its players, the most from any club, competed for three nations in last month's semifinals of the European championships. Five of them helped Spain defend its title. Those players - including Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo, Spain's Iker Casillas, and Germany's Mesut Ozil - will face Scottish champion Glasgow Celtic at Lincoln Financial Field on Saturday night. The exhibition is the end of a four-game tour of the United States.

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.

At first, the Union looked overwhelmed; then they slowly settled in; and, finally, they took on the personality that has defined them in their year-and-a-half existence in Major League Soccer. On Saturday night before 57,305 soccer enthusiasts at Lincoln Financial Field, the Union dug in against one of the world's best teams, fought, scrapped, and probably never acquitted themselves better in a losing effort. Real Madrid held on for a 2-1 win, and even though it was only a friendly, the Union made up for a slow start with a blazing finish that had one of the world's best teams back on its heels.

All signs point toward the Union playing host to international soccer power Real Madrid this summer. A formal announcement could come later this week, but a soccer source indicated that the two are expected to meet July 23 at Lincoln Financial Field. The two sides are reportedly tying up some final details. Union officials were unavailable for comment. If this goes through it would be the second consecutive year that the Union hosted an international soccer power. On July 21 last year, the Union hosted England's Manchester United at Lincoln Financial Field.

LONDON - Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund will take their increasingly acrimonious rivalry to a new level Saturday in the first all-German Champions League final. Relations between Germany's top two teams were always likely to be fraught ahead of their clash at Wembley Stadium, but a power struggle off the pitch has increased the stakes for the biggest prize in European club football. Dortmund, in particular, is unhappy with Bayern's transfer dealings as Mario Goetze, one of Dortmund's top players, is switching to the Bavarian side next season, and top scorer Robert Lewandowski is apparently keen to follow suit.

A month after his groundbreaking Olympic debut, South Africa's Oscar Pistorius was reeling from a stunning upset Sunday in the London Paralympics. Pistorius had never been beaten over 200 meters until Brazilian sprinter Alan Oliveira finished in 21.45 seconds to beat the Paralympics icon by 0.07 seconds. Pistorius, who won a legal battle to wear carbon-fiber blades in competing with able-bodied rivals, later suggested that Oliveira ran with longer prosthetics than should be allowed. "He's never run a 21-second race, and I don't think he's a 21-second athlete," Pistorius said.

Sunderland at Arsenal Saturday at 9:50 a.m. (ESPN; ESPN3.com) Whether you think it's the world's best league or not, there's no denying that the English Premier League is the most glamorous. The new season kicks off this weekend. After spending the summer fraying Arsenal fans' nerves, Robin van Persie has left for Manchester United (barring any problems with his medical tests).
