Floodlight failure: Both teams wait on the field

Floodlight failure: Both teams wait on the field

The teams, picked only from domestic leagues, were due to meet for the second time in two weeks after Brazil won 2-1 in the first match of the "Superclasico of the Americas" doubleheader in Goiania on September 19th.

Despite only picking domestic players, both squads featured some big names including Neymar, Lucas Moura, Leandro Damio and Maxi Rodriguez.

But just as the two sides took to the field, the power went. Chilean referee Enrique Osses delayed kick-off as both sides stood waiting for half an hour.

With no back-up generator available, the decision was made to abandon the match.

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
