AC Milan have defeated Qatar's Al Sadd 2-1 in their friendly clash last night.

Ronaldinho and Kaka were injured, but made the trip to greet the fans, while the Coach fielded a 4-4-2 system with David Beckham and Marek Jankulovski on the wings.

A defensive error almost let Kalifan in early on, but Alexandre Pato ran on to Andriy Shevchenko's through ball to to-poke the opener on 27 minutes.

Al Sadd equalised soon after with Golam's angled drive, but Milan sealed the scoreline before half-time with a left-foot strike from Luca Antonini.
