Crystal Palace cruise to victory over Richmond Kickers

Crystal Palace eased to a comfortable 3-0 friendly win over Richmond Kickers in Virginia.

The Kickers, who play in the lower leagues of US soccer, were no match for a strong Palace side that will now head back to England to prepare for the Premier League season.

After a lacklustre start to the game that saw neither keeper tested, the Eagles opened the scoring on 35 minutes when Peter Ramage headed home from a Jason Puncheon corner.

Glen Murray doubled the lead with another headed goal coming from a corner ten minutes after the restart.

Marouane Chamakh later nodded home to complete the scoring.
