The previous record of 101,799 was set in the 1984 Olympic final between France and Brazil at the Rose Bowl in California.

Ashley Young (pictured) scored twice in the first half of the International Champions Cup match, and substitute Javier Hernandez added a third in the 80th minute.

Gareth Bale scored from the spot for Real. United will meet Liverpool in the final in Miami tomorrow morning after Manchester City lost to Greek side Olympiakos on penalties.

Meanwhile, Frenchmen Yaya Sanogo scored four goals in Arsenal's 5-1 victory against Portuguese champion Benfica in the Emirates Cup in London. The Gunners unveiled star signing Alexis Sanchez from Barcelona in the second half, but the Chilean international didn't get on the scoreboard.
