Tokyo's Real friendly

FC Tokyo will play a home friendly against nine-time European champion Real Madrid on Aug. 5 at National Stadium, officials of the J. League first division side said Friday.

Emilio Butragueno, a former Real Madrid and Spain forward and now an official at the club, told reporters Real will be fielding a strong side including the likes of France playmaker Zinedine Zidane and Portuguese star Luis Figo.

"Our five stars will be coming," said Butragueno, referring to Zidane, Figo, Brazilian World Cup winners Rondaldo and Roberto Carlos and Spain striker Raul Gonzalez.
