Bayern Munich "not tested" by Tokyo

German league leaders Bayern Munich made short work of FC Tokyo, defeating the J-League side 4-0 in their first pre-season game in Japan. Dutch international striker Roy Makaay opened the scoring in the Japanese capital in the 19th minute and Brazilian defender Lucio headed home the second ten minutes later. It was a comfortable win for the German champions, a fact that was underlined by further strikes in the second half from substitutes Paulo Guerro and Hasan Salihamidzic. Bayern coach Felix Magath told reporters, "It was a good night for us. I was very pleased with our performance. FC Tokyo were quick but I don’t think we felt like we were ever really tested properly," goal.com reported.
