CRISTIANO-EL-SHARAAWAYDUBAI, December 31- Serie A giants AC Milan ‘ended’ Real Madrid’s 22 match winning streak on Tuesday as striker Stephan El Shaarawy scored twice in a 4-2 friendly win in Dubai. 

Real coach Carlo Ancelotti left star players Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema and James Rodriguez out of his starting line-up but Cristiano Ronaldo began the match and scored a first half goal in vain.

The European champions had won 22 matches in all competitions coming into the clash although Tuesday’s match was classified as a friendly and not an official fixture.

Real, won the World Club Cup on Sunday with a 2-0 win over Argentine club San Lorenzo, but El Shaarawy did the damage for the Italians with goals either side of half-time while Frenchman Jeremy Menez and Giampaolo Pazzini were also on target.
