Soccer fans in Atlanta should burn more candles to the fútbol gods as last night's game between Mexico City's Club America and AC Milan proved to be an exceptional match and who knows when the city will get to witness quality soccer again.

The "Aguilas" edged their Italian counterparts 2-1 before an estimated crowd of over 50,000 fans.

Club America came out strong on attack all first half, while AC Milan played a more passive game, but both teams went to the locker rooms at half-time with a nil-nil draw.

The Mexican team took the lead in the 55th minute off a brilliant finish by Enrique Estrada, beating American defender Oguchi Onyewu on the run. Onyewu was making his debut with AC Milan.

On the 65th minute, Filippo Inzaghi equalized capitalizing on a long pass into the goal area.

Daniel Marquez's header at the 84th minute sealed the victory for Club America.
