MLS All-Stars 0 - Manchester United 4

Manchester United had no problem finding their offense on Wednesday night at Red Bull Arena, with their defense shutting out the MLS All-Stars. Anderson opened the scoring for United n the 20th minute, with All-Star Most Valuable Player Ji-Sung Park scoring in the 45th minute. In the second-half, Dimitar Berbatov knocked in a ball that rebounded off the crossbar in the 52nd minute. Danny Welbeck finished off the scoring in the 68th. The All-Stars out-shot Manchester United 13 to 11, but United had the better accuracy putting six of their shots on frame to five for the All-Stars.

"Even if you lose 4-0, I can say I'm quite pleased with the performance," All-Stars coach Hans Backe said. "The first half is a very, very even first half. Possessionwise it's, I don't know, 50-50."
