STANFORD, Calif. -- Oscar Rojas scored the winning goal in the shootout and Club America defeated Inter Milan 5-4 on penalty kicks to take the first match of the inaugural World Football Championship on Sunday.
Ivan Ramiro Cordoba scored a goal in the 60th minute for Inter Milan to tie the match 1-1.
Club America took a 1-0 lead in the 51st minute when midfielder Juan Carlos Silva took a corner kick from Pavel Pardo and slammed a left-footed shot past goalkeeper Vid Belec.
Cordoba took a corner kick from Mario Baloelli and headed the tying goal past goalkeeper Armando Navarette.
The six-city round-robin tournament features four of the world's most storied soccer teams, England's Chelsea FC, Italy's AC Milan and Inter Milan and Mexico's Club America.
But the teams weren't treating the exhibition matches with great importance.
Inter Milan's Julio Cesar, one of the world's best goalkeepers, was not even with the team Sunday. Backup goalkeeper Francesco Toldo didn't suit up. That left the job to Belec, who turned 19 in June.
Two of Inter Milan's biggest stars, Argentinian defender Javier Zanetti and Swedish forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic were not in the starting lineup. Ibrahimovic entered the game early in the second half.
Club America was missing star goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa.
