Arsenal's joy was short-lived and the Spanish side regained the lead after Guti scraped the ball into the net from close range.

After the interval, Emmanuel Eboue channelled his inner Diego Maradona with an explosive run from his own half.

The Gunners legend effortlessly weaved through a sea of Madrid shirts, but he was hacked down as he charged into the penalty area.

Regardless of the outcome, the 'You've only come to come see Eboue' chant continued to echo around the Bernabeu Stadium.

Pires came close to finding the equaliser in the dying stages of the game, but his free kick was heroically cleared off the line.

This charity match was played in aid of Real Madrid’s Foundation and the return fixture will be played in aid of The Arsenal Foundation on September 8 at the Emirates.
