Kansas City Wizards 2-1 Manchester United

Two first-half goals were enough to give ten-man Kansas a hard-fought 2-1 win over United.

The Wizards endured the entire second half a man short, lining up with a 4-4-1 formation, but somehow seeing the match out.

In front of a 52,424-strong crowd at the New Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas, the home side went 1-0 up after 11 minutes.

Captain Davy Arnaud got in front of defensive partnership Chris Smalling and Johnny Evans and slotted right footed low to Ben Amos's right.

The Americans competed well throughout the first period and had two more good chances to build on their lead.

Back from injury, Nani showed some promise for United with a solo run and a powerful shot after a solo run, which hit the 'keeper.

But it was Dimitar Berbatov who was to get the reds back into the game.

The Bulgarian was tripped by Jimmy Conrad in the box. The referee awarded a penalty - and shocked the crows by sending off Conrad.

Berbatov scored from the spot, but the Wizards restored their lead three minutes later.

Just two minutes before the break, Kei Kamara scored a wonderful headed goal, getting on the end of a corner and nodding well past Amos.

In hot conditions, United found it difficult to break down a Wizards wall, with substitute Danny Welbeck having the best of a number of chances in the second half.

Though this was a young and much-changed side, Sir Alex will not be happy that the likes of Nani, Giggs and Berbatov have slipped to defeat against this level of opposition.

He will be demanding a huge improvement against the MLS All-Star team on Wednesday.

United: Ben Amos; Rafael, Chris Smalling, Jonny Evans, Ritchie De Laet; Nani, Paul Scholes, Darron Gibson, Ryan Giggs(c); Dimitar Berbatov, Mame Biram Diouf

Subs: Edwin van der Sar, Wes Brown, Danny Welbeck, Fabio, Gabriel Obertan, Federico Macheda, Corry Evans, Tom Cleverley.

Yeovil 3-2 Manchester United XI

Yeovil came back from one down and hit three against a young United side, who then grabbed a consolation goal.

While the goals tally gave the 6,664 spectators inside Huish Park good value for money, the match was less about the result than it was about the occasion.

The afternoon belonged to Darren Way, the Yeovil player whose prosperous career was cut short by a serious car crash.

To the crowd's delight, the Glovers' legend was able to play a two-minute part in the match.

Yeovil hit the bar early on before Rodrigo Possebon gave United the lead, grabbing his second goal in a week.

He made way at half time for Robert Brady and then came an inspired Yeovil fightback.

They grabbed three goals in four minutes, first through Jean-Peal Kalala from 25 yards, then from Sam Williams from close range and then from an Adam Virgo header.

Brady grabbed a late consolation, but the match ended 3-2, meaning United's pre-season record now stands at played three, won two, lost one.

Their next test will be at Oxford United on Tuesday.

Community Shield ticket update

All United end tickets for the Community Shield against Chelsea on August 8 have now sold out.

Philadelphia Union 0-1 Manchester United

A second-half Obertan strike was enough to earn United the win in an otherwise sloppy performance in America.

In front of 44,213 people, United start brightly with Danny Welbeck finding space in the final third.

But he consistently lacked edge in front of goal and failed to make a series of chances pay.

The hosts, however, proved they were not here just to make up the numbers and had three first-half efforts of their own, testing 'keeper Thomas Kuscak regularly. Alejandro Morena and Fred looked a handful for the reds.

At one stage, captain Ryan Giggs made his frustrations clear, ticking off junior teammate Obertan for dwelling too much on the ball.

And, even though the match went through a full spell in the first 20 minutes after the break, it was the Frenchman who put United ahead on 76 minutes.

Undoing all their earlier sterling work, Union gave the ball away sloppily to Welbeck who ran down the right and crossed superbly to Obertan, who slotted home comfortably.

But that strike seemed to paper over the cracks of a flimsy defence, an overrun midfield and a far from clinical strikeforce bolstered by the late arrival of Dimitar Berbatov.

Sir Alex Ferguson's men will be striving to improve when in Kansas, where they next play, on Sunday.

United: Kusczak; O'Shea (De Laet 76), Brown (Smalling 61), J Evans, Fabio (Rafael 61); Cleverley (C Evans 61), Scholes (Fletcher 61), Giggs; Obertan, Macheda (Berbatov 61), Welbeck.
