Andriy Lunin, the newly recruited goalkeeper of Real Madrid, made a successful first appearance for his team. The player debuted in the second half of the game against Manchester United in the International Champions Cup, a friendly football tournament.

The former goalkeeper of Zorya Luhansk made history, becoming the first Ukrainian to play for Real Madrid - ever. The Spaniards bought him from Zorya for 14 million Euros.
