This was the first match this 'season' in which United played the United way. It was an enjoyable match unlike the matches United played prior to this final. After the match the players were awarded a medal and an eye catching Vodacom Challenge Trophy was presented to Ryan Giggs. Oh well another trophy is added to our trophy cabinet! Well done to all the players.
United's next match is tomorrow against Portsmouth in Nigeria. A dress rehearsal for the upcoming Charity Shield.

I didn't watch this match because my computer got and still is infected with a virus and I couldn't get the P2P program working. I usually watch friendlies on Sopcast, a free program were live matches are streamed. The picture quality is usually crap but it is enough for a pre season friendly.
The game ended 1-0 for United with Lee Martin scoring the winning goal on the 23rd minute.
United's next match is vs either Kaizer Chiefs or Orlando Pirates on Sat 26th July @ 3.30pm (Cet)
United: Foster, Brown, Ferdinand, Evans (Simpson 88), Silvestre (O'Shea 62), Eagles, Carrick (Scholes 69), Gibson (Fletcher 82), Martin, Tevez (Rooney 69), Campbell.

The first goal was scored by Micheal Carrick on the stroke of half time from the spot after Wayne Rooney had been fouled in the box by the Aberdeen goalie. Events during this game were rare but a great buildup lead to Fletcher crossing the ball to Rooney, with the latter heading the ball into the net. 2-0 was the final score.
