   Thousands of soccer fans were treated to an exhibition match between two of the world's most successful teams.  The Busch Stadium field was transformed into a pitch for last night's "friendly" which was enjoyed by a sold out crowd. 

   People spent a lot of time standing in lines for souvenirs or the chance to pose with the Europe league trophy won earlier this month by Chelsea.

   They paid to see the stars and the stars didn't disappoint: Oscar, Dzeko, Tevez, Torres.  English Premier League rivals Chelsea and Manchester City battled at Busch Stadium to the delight of local and visiting soccer fans alike.

   Chelsea built a 3-0 lead, but Manchester City answered with four of their own. The final was 4-3, but fans here feel like they were the winners.

   The two teams play another friendly match Saturday at Yankee Stadium.
