Chelsea lose shootout in Moscow again

11:35 am on 2 August 2008

The English football side Chelsea has once more had a penalty shootout defeat in Moscow, in the Railways Cup tournament, following their Champions League final loss to Manchester United in May.

Luiz Felipe Scolari's men fell to Lokomotiv Moscow 5-4 on penalties after the match ended 1-1 in the semi-final of the friendly, pre-season event.

In the other semi-final, AC Milan stopper Gennaro Gattuso netted the only goal of the match sending the ball into his own net in an attempt to clear Enzo Maresca's right-handed cross from a freekick two minutes after the interval.

Chelsea will play AC Milan for third-place in the tournament.
