Real Madrid in Los Angeles

Earlier in the day, Real Madrid landed at Los Angeles Airport (LAX) after a 15 hour chartered flight from Barajas Airport in Madrid to touch down at the private terminal in Los Angeles. The 15 hour journey included a stopover at Halifax in Canada for refueling. Flight which started at 12.30 PM CET landed at 3:12 AM CET (6.12 PM EST).

Cristiano Ronaldo, Pepe, Marcelo, Ramos and Xabi Alonso were the first to disembark from the plane. It took over two hours for the whole team to get done with custom inspections and other security procedures which meant the team had to split into two buses. They then headed to the Beverly Hills Hotel on Sunset Boulevard to be greeted by fans and media.

The first to arrive at the hotel were Cristiano, Pepe, Marcelo, Xabi, Ramos, Arbeloa, Casillas, Coentrao, Benzema, Albiol, Adan, Ozil, Carvalho, Mejias, Sahin, Varane and Khedira.

Later, Callejon, Jese, Casado, Nacho, Joselu and Jesus arrived accompanied by Zidane, Rui Faria, Jose Morais (Technical assistant). Zidane was the only one who stayed back to sign autographs for the fans. (and you wonder why people love him!)
