Club friendlies wrap: Ibrahimovic scores on PSG debut
Zlatan Ibrahimovic got off to a flying start with Paris Saint-Germain, scoring three minutes into his debut – a 1-1 friendly draw with DC United.
The Swedish striker did not make much of an impact beyond his quick goal and was withdrawn after 38 minutes on Saturday.
Coach Carlo Ancelotti had said prior to the match that Ibrahimovic would play 40-45 minutes.
His time on the pitch was interrupted by a lightning delay, which broke up the first half of the friendly.
PSG's newest arrival made his debut in style in the third minute.
Ibrahimovic collected a probing pass from Jeremy Menez, sharply cut to his left foot, feigned then buried a laser into the far corner.
After the 45-minute delay because of lightning and thunder, DC equalised thanks to a Dwayne De Rosario penalty.
Elsewhere on Saturday, Liverpool and Tottenham played out a goalless draw in Baltimore as the Anfield club concluded a winless tour of the United States.
Chelsea succumbed to their second consecutive pre-season defeat after falling 1-0 to AC Milan in Miami.
Both sides named strong starting sides with Chelsea beginning with arguably their best defence, while the likes of Eden Hazard, Raul Meireles and Frank Lampard roamed further forward.
Milan, whose squad is looking depleted following a summer of upheaval, were the victors thanks to Urby Emanuelson with just over 20 minutes to go.
Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech could only partially stop Stephan El Shaarawy's close-range strike and Emanuelson was on hand to finish.
Lionel Messi scored a hat-trick as Barcelona cruised to an 8-0 win over Raja Casablanca at the Grand Stade in Tangier.
The Argentine sealed the milestone on the stroke of half-time, but they required Alexis Sanchez to open the scoring, while Dani Alves and substitutes Sergi Gomez and Gerard Deulofeu also managed to join in on the goal rush.
