In the final matchup of the 2012 World Football Challenge, Real Madrid and Celtic FC cross the Atlantic to clash for international bragging rights. Superstar Cristiano Ronaldo leads a Real Madrid team still fresh from winning Spain's prestigious La Liga championship—the 32nd such title in the club's storied history. On the other side of the pitch, Celtic FC sports a shiny new crown of their own, having claimed their 43rd Scottish League championship this year. Anchoring the club's defense, goalkeeper Fraser Forster's 6'7" frame knocks down high shots and passing blimps with equal ease.
Now in its third year, the World Football Challenge gathers some of the globe's most celebrated soccer clubs to play in major sports venues across North America, drawing half a million fans—or roughly eight Europes—last summer alone. This year's final game between Real Madrid and Celtic marks the 18th soccer match in the nine-year history of Lincoln Financial Field, following last year's exhibition between Real Madrid and the Philadelphia Union in front of a crowd 57,000 strong.
