A confident Real Madrid side claimed a sixth win of pre-season but Inter Milan's tour of the United States ended with another lacklustre display.

When the dust settled on eight frantic opening minutes in St Louis, Madrid were a goal to the good. Kaka had snuck between Inter's defenders to shoot against the flicked glove of Samir Handanovic before putting his head through the rebound to make sure.

Cristiano Ronaldo then saw a close-range effort repelled by Alvaro Pereira and, at the other end, Alvaro Morata blasted over the crossbar when put through by Casemiro.

Ronaldo missed the mark with a bullet header from a corner but in the 38th minute his angled drive would convert a cute through-ball from Luka Modric to give Real a 2-0 lead going into the break.

Inter's woes continued into the second half as Ricky Alvarez put through his own net from a corner on 67 minutes.

Mauro Icardi - a summer signing from Sampdoria - thought he had found a consolation for the Nerazzurri late on but his header was cleared off the line.

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
