A Manchester and New York showdown took place at City Football Academy on Friday morning.
Sergio Aguero and David Villa may not have played together but you wouldn't have known that if you were present for the filming of a special three-part coming to CityTV on Tuesday.
The pair seemed to have plenty to talk when they first met up about but the mood soon turned competitive as the City and NYCFC striking aces took part in a blind penalty shootout, crossbar challenge and a corner scoring game.
We were on hand to capture the images on the day a new transatlantic friendship was born.
CityTV dish out the blindfolds and outline the rules for the penalty shootout.
New amigos... Sergio and David get acquainted.
Villa's up first from 12 yards... NYCFC begin their MLS season away at Orlando City (no relation) on 8 March.
Kun scored a penalty against Stoke City with aplomb last time out... something tells me it's not going to be so simple this time!
Looking good, Sergio... but will the Argentine come out on top?
David was on the scoresheet in NYCFC's win over St Mirren on Tuesday - will he repeat the trick against Brondby on Sunday?
NYCFC's training camp at City Football Academy has created plenty of new transatlantic friendships - this certainly looks like another one!
Sergio looks like he's about to get 40 winks on a flight here.
What's going on here, then? You'll have to wait for the three-part video series on CityTV to find out!
