The Dallas Cup opened with plenty of goals in Bracket B courtesy of Eintracht Frankfurt’s 6-1 demolition of Urawa Red Diamonds. Vancouver Whitecaps also notched up an impressive win over Club Futbol Monterrey in Bracket C, the scoreline reading 4-1.

After the break, a Robbie Mak penalty and two more goals sealed an emphatic win for the young City side. Manchester City 4-0 AC Milan.
