before the 2010-2011 EPL season start, as usual, some of EPL participants do some warming-up game outside england. for this year, manchester united chose United States as a place for their pre-season games. they will have 4 matches to play during their pre-season tour. the first game will be the “battle of britain” against scotish giant, Glasgow Celtic on July 16, 5 days later they will play against the home team philadelphia union in philadelpia, the 3rd match will be held in kansas, when united meet the kansas city wizard.
their latest match during the tour will be against the MLS – All star. MLS has an annual tradition match againts the european team, unlike the NBA all star game where the NBA player will play for they own conference.
and then..united beat the all star team, actually i’m still worried about the united back line, united still need the figure like nemanja vidic and rio ferdinand to command the line, while the youngster like rafael, jonny evans & rithchie de leat still need a time to learn from their senior. but it was a good call from the debutant, chicarito hernandez scored his first goal on his debut. Tom Claverly also showed a good composure when he score his goal. united fans also could forget the rocekt ronaldo free kick, since darron gibson put a brilliant free kick.
