Chelsea have stepped up their pre-season preparations by participating in the World Series of Football tournament in the United States of America this summer. Chelsea met AC Milan and claimed a 1-0 win, thanks to an Arjen Robben goal on 13 minutes. Foot injuryRobben must have bad memories of last season’s version of this prestigious tournament. The forward, born in the Dutch village of Bedum, sustained a serious foot injury, following a bad tackle from an opponent. It was the nasty start of a season that was marred by much injury woe.Winning goalEnglish ruling champions Chelsea met Champions League finalist AC Milan in the Boston Gilette Stadium in Boston. A crowd of some 25, 000 saw the London club take an early lead. Robben was put clear by a fine penetrating Makalele pass and the forward placed a low shot just inside the post. The Italians never recovered from the blow and Robben’s early goal turned out to be the winning one. Chelsea will now meet D.C. United in Washington.
