Ronaldo inspires Real Madrid win over Everton

Cristiano Ronaldo shone in Real Madrid's 2-1 win over Everton at Dodger Stadium on Saturday, to reach the International Champions Cup final.

The Portugal international opened the scoring for the La Liga giants on 17 minutes, taking a touch around Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard before sliding the ball home from a tight angle.

Ronaldo then set up Mesut Ozil for the second, just after the half-hour mark, after a fine chipped pass over the top from Luka Modric.

The Premier League side came back stronger after the break and deservedly pegged one back, courtesy of substitute Nikica Jelavic, in the 61st minute.

However, Roberto Martinez' side could not manage to find an equaliser, with Phil Jagielka coming closest with 12 minutes remaining, but his header from Leighton Baines' free-kick looped over the bar.

Los Blancos are, therefore, through to Wednesday's final, where they will face the winner of AC Milan's meeting with Chelsea.
