    Benfica takes the match, 4-2, in penalty kicks after a scoreless game. I know Frank Cunha would love to hear that another friendly with a Portuguese team resulted in a nil - nil tie.

    Lineups for Sporting: Tiago; César Prates, Quiroga, Contreras, Tello; Rui Bento, Ricardo Fernandes, Quaresma, Toñito, Pedro Barbosa; Niculae.

    Suplentes: Nuno Santos, Diogo, Beto, Paulo Bento, Luís Filipe, Rui Jorge, Carlos Martins, Danny, Ronaldo e Santamaria.

    Lineups for Benfica: Moreira; Armando, Argel, João Manuel Pinto e Cristiano; Petit, Tiago, Roger, Zahovic; Drulovic e Mantorras. Suplentes:

    Nuno Santos, Cabral, Peixe, Andersson, Ednilson, George, Anderson Luis, Carlitos, Geraldo, Andrade, Eder, Fernando Aguiar, Zé Roberto e Ricardo Rocha.

    What a boring game.
    And the trophy was ridiculous.

    Here you have people paying $50 to watch this game in Alvalade and they come up with the smallest and cheapest looking trophy.

    what kind of trophy should be given to a winner of a pre season game? I was surprised they even got a trophy, what a joke. It was almost embarrassing.

    Next year they will have the game again, its good for relations between the teams. The money was split between the two organizations, I expected a bigger crowd. I guess the price for the tickets and because the game was schedule at the end of the month.
