Real Madrid thrashed LA Galaxy 5-1 on their tour to the US. Beckham and co were unable to make any sort of impression on the game against the Spanish Champions. Real Madrid scored inside the first 3 minutes and that set the pace for the rest of the match. Higuain scored the first goal for Real Madrid and from there on till the end the flood gates remained open with Di Maria, Morata, Callegon and Jesse scoring a goal apiece to make it the fantastic 5 for Real Madrid.

Ronaldo also came on in the 2nd half and I think half of the crowd came to the match just to see him put on a show. I think he pretty much did and I think Mourinho brought him on just for that because the game was pretty much done and dusted in the first half.

It was good to see Diarra getting involved in the game on many occasions and even took some shots at the goal and was really effective in the link up play. I have not heard much on his future at Real Madrid as I think no club has shown interest in him. Couple of days ago Diarra mentioned that he would play wherever Mourinho wants him to play. That definitely means that Lass wants to stay at Real Madrid and prove his worth. Obviously, that would all change if a big club comes offering Diarra some hefty salary and playing time.
