Some photos from the exciting night in Chicago.

It got a little rainy as the game kicked off.

Colorado Rapids’ goalkeeper Tim Howard played the first half of the 2017 MLS All-Star Game last night, and had a couple great saves to keep the game nil-nil going into halftime. All told, Real Madrid had an astounding 30 shots, though only five on target, compared to the MLS All-Stars 10 shots and two on target.

Borja Mayoral put the Spanish side on the board first, scoring in the 59th minute. Dom Dwyer scored in the 87th minute to send the game into penalty kicks. Dwyer also took the first PK and Luca Zidane (yes, of that Zidane) guessed correctly and easily saved the ball as it rolled on the ground. Giovani dos Santos was up next for the MLS side and missed. Real Madrid made all of their penalty shots against Stefan Frei, and the visiting team took the W.

“Honestly I didn’t even know that it would go straight to PKs,” Frei said. “I thought the game was over, and we’d end in a tie so I’m going to call FIFA rules on that and we’ll stick with a tie.” The only other time an all-star game went into penalties, Howard helped Everton beat the MLS players.

But overall, everyone seemed to have a positive experience, including our photographer, John A. Babiak. Check out these photos from the big event:
