Too good to ignore

Not being a soccer fan at all I just had to laugh at the following:

Tokyo Verdy 1969 (東京ヴェルディ1969), who conceded 26 goals in six matches earlier this month, did the unthinkable Monday night by thumping Spanish giants Real Madrid 3-0 at Ajinomoto Stadium (味の素スタジアム).

Real Madrid, with very expensive players (including Ronaldo, David Beckham, Zinedine Zidane and Luis Figo, who all played) and a reputation from here to, literally, Tokyo, was beaten by some minor Japanese club.

Shows that zeal wins over routine if you really want to show what you got.
