Kightly opened the scoring for Mark Hughes' side in the fourth minute when he volleyed in a cross from recently-signed Spain Under-21 defender Marc Muniesa.

Shea doubled the scoring 15 minutes later with a composed finish from Kightly's ball, although the American left the action in the 34th minute following a tough challenge from the MLS side's Matt Kassel.

Stoke start their Premier League campaign at Liverpool on August 17.
