Final Whistle on Hate Friendly match

Chelsea FC dominated the New England Revolution 3-0 in International Friendly match at Gillette Stadium.

Chelsea flew to the United States for the friendly before they face London rivals Arsenal in the final of the Europa League on May 29th.

Ross Barkley scored two of the three goals for Chelsea one in each half and Oliver Giroud added the other on a diving header to complete the scoring.

Both clubs suffered injuries during the match as New England’s Buchanan left with an injury in the first half and Chelsea’s Ruben Loftus-Cheek suffered an Achilles injury in the second half and will miss the Europa League Final.

The “Final Whistle on Hate” match raised an estimated $4 million in the battle against hate and prejudice. The idea for the match was developed by club owners Roman Abramovich and Robert Kraft.  All proceeds from the match were donated to 15 organizations in support of the cause.
