With Manchester United playing their final pre-season match in Ireland there was a short montage on the Red Devil’s Irish players. There were also new virals from Manchester United’s training camp with the Three Ball Routine and an interview with Mike Phelan, while Michael Owen spoke to FATV about his hopes for the new season.
Airtricity League XI 1 – Manchester United 7 (Pre-season friendly, August 4, 2010) (Longer highlights) The Airtricity League XI were shown up after 12 minutes of their friendly with Manchester United as it looked like park football when a terrible error in defence gifted Park ji-Sung the luckiest goal of his career. Just over ten minutes later it was 2-nil when a sweeping United attack eventually saw the ball fall to Little Mickey in the box and, after a lucky break, Owen flicked a sweet lob over the keeper. Within two minutes of the restart United made it three when a Valencia cross was rifled into the top corner by new-boy Javier Hernandez. The floodgates began to open on the hour when Antonio Valencia slipped in number four. Park Ji-Sung curled home number five in the 63rd and then local boy Jonny Evans got in on the goalfest with a 69th minute header. The hosts netted a consolation through Mulcahy’s neat finish but Luis Nani scored the last goal for United from the penalty spot after Chicharito had been brought down in the box.
