Gangzhou 2 - 8 United
The final game of the Asia Tour proved to be a really entertaining match. United’s 8 goals were scored by Giggs who scored a hat trick, Owen who scored 2 while Nani, Tosic and Berbatov scored the rest. United scored some amazing goals, and I’m obviously happy with the result but I’m disappointed with the goals we conceded.
Berbatov looked very sharp and made some mouth watering passes, two delightful assists and scored a good goal. Nani had another excellent game; I said it time and time again, he’ll shine this season. Owen scored a brace with the second being an absolute eye pleaser and Giggs came off the bench to score a hat trick. Van der Sar wasn’t troubled but our future number 1, Foster, conceded two goals and was at fault for the first one. Rooney had a frustrating match while Anderson hit the woodwork and fired wide from an ideal position. He’ll never score.
I’m certainly delighted today with the result but winning a match against a team I can hardly pronounce is not such a massive achievement. It was a good warm up to the Audi cup though!
