English Premier League’s Manchester United dominated the Major League Soccer All Stars last night, blanking them 4-0. Though the MLS All Stars had some good scoring chances during the match, Manchester United dominated the full 90 minutes. Man. U’s Wayne Rooney was the star, setting up half of the Reds’ four goals.
Anderson opened up the scoring for United in the 20th minute off a pass from Rooney. After the first 40 minutes, the score held at 1-0 to the Reds’ advantage. But during the second half, the English team busted the game wide open. Ji-Sung Park kept the scoring going by dribbling around an MLS defender and putting the ball in the back of the net to make it 2-0 in the 45th minute. Rooney set up the third goal just seven minutes later with a pass to Dimitar Berbatov that found its way to the back of the net. Capping off the scoring was Danny Welbeck, whose shot deflected off an MLS defender before finding the back of the net.
Manchester United is currently on a tour of the United States before its season begins back in Europe. The win puts the Reds at 4-0 during their time in the States, outscoring their opponents by a margin of 18-2. Man. U will conclude its American tour in Washington in a match against FC Barcelona, a repeat of the Champions League Final, which Barcelona won 3-1.
