Win Important Ahead Of Manchester United

Win Important Ahead Of Manchester United

Real Madrid bring the curtain down on the tour of America with a final pre-season friendly against an MLS All-Star side.

A win, as always, is important, arguably more so with Manchester United to follow.

The European Super Cup will be played on August 8th and despite the fact Real haven't exactly been poor in pre-season the form has hardly been brilliant as Los Blancos are yet to taste victory, losing all three International Champions Cup games, albeit the Man United meeting was draw before the penalty defeat in California.

A win would send Real into the Super Cup meeting 'feeling good' with Toni Kroos telling he's targeting this victory and some minutes on the pitch himself.

'We'll try to win, as always. It's the last game and we want to finish pre-season with a victory. It's important go in to next week's match against Manchester United feeling good.'

Adding: 'I feel good, training with the team. The ankle is fine, I'll have a few minutes tomorrow. It's going to be an important match, it always is when you wear this shirt, you have to go out and win. It's the last game before the important things start. Our goal is to go in to the next game in good shape so it's important to win.'

In terms of pre-season the German went on to say he feels Real are 'at an excellent level' having worked very hard in America, which has proven a positive three weeks physically for all involved.

As for the fans the midfielder said they have amazed him once again with Kroos' first experience of Chicago impressive as is the standard of football in America, which will be seen in this meeting even if it isn't quite up to La Liga or Bundesliga level.

'Sometimes it's crazy where we go: United States, China, Europe...The fans are always happy to see us and there is always madness. They're happy to see us train and play. When you see it, you realise you're at the biggest team in the world, there's no other team like this,' said Kroos.

'It's the first time I've been here. We arrived last night and I have not had much time but the city seems wonderful. Football is improving in the United States. In Europe we're seeing how many excellent players have come here who have had great careers. This league has a lot of quality, perhaps not as much as Spain or Germany but everyone says it's brilliant.'
