Panathinaikos drew 0-0 against AC Milan in a friendly match that took place at the Pontiac Silverdome in Detroit. Despite the low offensive productivity that the final score might suggest, the “shamrock” created numerous chances to score and grab the win. In fact, in the 55th minute, Sidney Govou scored but his goal did not count as the referee mistakenly decided that the ball didn’t cross Amelia’s line. After 90 minutes of play, and with the score still goalless, the winner was decided by a penalty shootout in which Milan prevailed 5 to 3.
