Milanello Special: Ac Milan First Training Game 2012/2013 at Milanello
Ac Milan continue their training session this time with a mini game between ranks as coach Massimiliano Allegri divided the group into two teams, Rossonero and Bianco.
The Red n Black side consist mostly of first team players with the exception of Bryan Cristante, Davide Pacifico and Bastone in the first half but only Pacifico stayed until the end of that 50 minutes game.
The match started in a pretty good fashion but the Rossonero side who have more quality and experience simply took the Bianco by storm as the previous eventually won it, 8-0. The latter actually put out a good fight especially in the first period but too many defensive errors simply cost them that huge scoreline, despite some okay performances from the youngsters in that white team.
Massimo Ambrosini along with Robinho netted two goals each, while other goals were scored by Kevin Prince Boateng, Bakaye Traore, Urby Emanuelson and Pacifico. The players who simply caught the eye were Stephan El Shaarawy, Traore, Mattia De Sciglio, Boateng, Robinho and Ambrosini. While some youngsters such as Bryan Cristante along with Alessio Innocenti also showcased their promising talent, with some accurate passing throughout the game.
