AP Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo reacts after scoring during the first half of their International Champions Cup soccer match against Everton in Los Angeles.

Cristiano Ronaldo scored in the 17th minute and set up Mesut Ozil’s goal 14 minutes later, leading Real Madrid to the final of the International Champions Cup with a 2-1 victory over Everton on Saturday night.

Ronaldo and Ozil starred in the first football game played at the 51 year-old Dodger Stadium, keeping Real Madrid unbeaten in its preseason friendlies.

Second-half substitute Nikica Jelavic scored in the 61st minute for Everton, which gave a solid challenge to the Galacticos. Tim Howard, Everton’s American goalkeeper, made a handful of brilliant saves to keep Real Madrid from increasing its lead.

The inaugural International Champions Cup matches seven European teams and MLS’ Los Angeles Galaxy in an exhibition tournament.
