Chelsea fall 1-0 to AC Milan in friendly

MIAMI (AP) Urby Emanuelson scored in the 69th minute to lift AC Milan to a 1-0 victory over Champions League winner Chelsea in an exhibition match Saturday night.

Emanuelson dribbled unmarked deep toward the Chelsea penalty area and, as defenders closed in, he sent a pass toward the left wing to Stephan El Shaarawy. Shaarawy returned an immediate pass to Emanuelson, who beat Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech with a shot near the 6-yard box.

Eden Hazard had Chelsea's best attempt to tie it with 4 minutes remaining in regulation. Hazard's free kick near from the half circle sailed a couple of feet above the crossbar.

The match at Sun Life Stadium was played before 57,748 fans, the highest of the 2012 Herbalife World Football Challenge and second-best for a soccer game in the stadium's history.
