Another instance of 'no one told these guys it was a friendly,' as Barclays Premier League champs Manchester City took on the team they squeaked by to win their title, Liverpool.  The match took place in a nearly sold-out crowd in New York's Yankee Stadium as part of the 2014 Guinness International Champions Cup, though bragging rights may have made for higher stakes for the two teams.  After ending regulation time 2-2, Liverpool won in penalty kicks with Liverpool and Belgian National Team goalkeeper Simon Mignolet saving the day.
