Soccer Watch: Champions League Quarter Finals

After last week’s “international friendlies,” we get back into the more serious (really, who doesn’t take friendly matches seriously, though?) action, specifically the first leg of the Quarter Finals action in the UEFA Champions League. Although it was hard to avoid Wayne Rooney’s screaming cuss words directly into the camera during the Manchester United match against Chelsea, it seems another photographer was able to catch an even more interesting view of Rooney.

Man U got the best of Chelsea with a 1-0 victory, but the two clubs will face each other once again next week. Barcelona, Real Madrid and Schalke also had victories in the first leg of the Quarter Final matchups.

Check out some of the boots worn in this week’s Soccer Watch coverage below with photos courtesy of Yahoo.
