On Wednesday, England International Ross Barkley scored two times as Chelsea cruised to a Three-Zero victory over the New England Revolution in a charity friendly at Foxborough. After Pedro’s cross in the third minute to give Chelsea the lead, Barkley calmly placed a low finish into the net.
The score became 2-0 by France striker Olivier Giroud, nodding home David Zappacosta’s cross in the 29th minute. When Gonzalo Higuain’s shot was diverted into goal by Barkey, the Premier League got finished in the 62nd minute.
In the second half of the match, Ruben Loftus-Cheek was out of the action which seemed to be due to an ankle injury which was no doubt a disadvantage for Chelsea. The game of Wednesday, which took place just three days after Chelsea concluded their Premier League campaign, was promoted as the “Final Whistle On Hate” with funds raised going to organizations who combat hate crimes.
To organize the match, Robert Kraft, the billionaire owner of the New England Revolution and New England Patriots NFL team, joined forces with Chelsea’s Russian tycoon owner Roman Abramovich. In a statement on Chelsea’s website, it has been said the game had raised USD 4 million for charities.
