Real Madrid defeats Celtic FC 2-0 in Philadelphia


PHILADELPHIA, PA. (AP) - Real Madrid defeated Celtic FC 2-0 Saturday in the World Football Challenge.

Gonzalo Higuain split two Celtic FC defenders and fed Joe Maria Callejon who scored in the 22nd minute.

Karim Benzema added a goal in the 67th minute, steering a shot to the far left corner of the net beating goalkeeper Lukasz Zaluska before a crowd of 34,018 at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia.

Celtic FC's Dylan McGeough was knocked out and removed from the field on a stretcher after a collision during a head ball. McGeough and Real Madrid's Nuri Sahin went up for the ball, and Sahin caught him on the chin with his left shoulder.

McGeough moved his arms across his chest while being carted off the field.
