Real Madrid 5-1 Toronto FC – Video Highlights

They are called the galacticos of soccer and judging by the dazzling style of play on display Friday night, the high-priced talent assembled by Real Madrid during the off-season will live up to the billing.

Two pretty goals by Raul plus a brilliant strike by Cristiano Ronaldo inside the opening 26 minutes sent the European giants to a 5-1 victory over Toronto FC, in a friendly that showed off a level of soccer Canadian fans rarely see in person.

Karim Benzema, in the 65th minute, and Arjen Robben in the 86th, also scored as a record crowd of 22,089 at BMO Field – including NBA stars Steve Nash and Chris Bosh, former Chief of the Defence Staff General Rick Hillier, Spain’s ambassador to Canada and Glass Tiger’s Alan Frew – were awed by the storied Spanish side’s penetrating runs, deft touches and precision passing.

Kaka also made hi debut in this game

“I am very happy with my debut and for being able to play with Real Madrid,” he told the club website on Saturday morning.”I didn’t score a goal, but the main thing was to make chances and I took an important part and felt very comfortable playing alongside the other players. Real Madrid affects a lot of people and I am happy to be a part of this club,” added Kaka.

Real Madrid will play DC United on Sunday night before traveling back to Spain to continue with pre-season training.
