Friendly: AC Milan 0:0 (3:4 after penalties) PSV - match report

Milan lost to PSV Eindhoven on a penalty shoot-out after the opening Moscow Tournament match ended goalless.

Yoann Gourcuff and Clarence Seedorf made the decisive errors from the spot for a team that started without Ronaldo, Pippo Inzaghi or Alberto Gilardino.

Andrea Pirlo had the best scoring opportunity of the game, but his long-range effort cracked against the upright after 41 minutes.

Youth team striker Willy Aubameyang failed to break through the PSV back line and despite many half-time substitutions, neither side could make an impact.

The Dutch outfit seemed content with the draw and after Kaka, Serginho and Pirlo converted their penalties, Milan lost 4-3 in the shoot-out.

Nelson Dida managed to save one PSV effort from Simons, but it was not enough as Gourcuff’s was parried and Seedorf hit the bar.

This was only the Rossoneri’s second friendly of the campaign following the 4-0 win over Lecco earlier this week.

The other clubs taking part in the Moscow Tournament are Lokomotiv and Real Madrid.

Milan: Dida; Oddo (Cafu 46), Nesta (Simic 63), Kaladze, Jankulovski (Serginho 46); Gattuso (Brocchi 63), Pirlo, Ambrosini; Seedorf, Kakà; Aubameyang (Gourcuff 46)

MILAN - Italian FA president Giancarlo Abete has confirmed Alessandro Nesta's decision not to return to the national team: "Yesterday Nesta clarified his position further. The Federation had made one more approach before the game in Budapest, but Nesta, who has given a lot to the National team, was clear in his position as always."
