  • Manchester United 2-2 Chelsea, Chelsea win on penalty

    Chelsea beat Manchester United in a penalty shoot-out to win the Community Shield after the FA Cup holders and Premier League champions finished level at 2-2 at Wembley.

    Salomon Kalou blasted home the winning spot-kick for Carlo Ancelotti's side, after United's Ryan Giggs and Patrice Evra had their efforts saved by Petr Cech.

    Nani put United ahead on 10 minutes in regular time with a long-range strike, before Ricardo Carvalho headed an equaliser for Chelsea early in the second half.

    Chelsea went ahead in controversial circumstances on 71 minutes, when Frank Lampard finished a breakaway move with Nani laid prone on the turf after a dubious challenge from Michael Ballack.

    But United forced a penalty shoot-out in injury time when Rooney ran onto to Ryan Giggs's through ball and lifted a calm finish over Cech.

    Chelsea win penalty on full score 3-6. So this is first trophy for Ancellotti in England.

    Team Line-Up:
    MU: Foster; O'Shea (Fabio 76), Ferdinand, Evans, Evra; Park (Giggs 75), Fletcher (Scholes 75), Carrick, Nani (Nani 62); Rooney, Berbatov (Owen 75)

    Chelsea: Cech; Ivanovic (Bosingwa 46), Terry, Carvalho, A. Cole; Mikel (Ballack 65), Essien, Lampard, Malouda (Deco 77); Drogba, Anelka (Kalou 82)
