United gear up for Philly challenge

Sir Alex Ferguson's men are making final preparations ahead of the second game in their second game of the five-match North American tour

The friendly against Philadelphia Union kicks off at 19:30 local time and 00:30 UK time on Thursday.

It's being played at the 68,000-capacity Lincoln Field Stadium and, like in the first game of the tour, in Canada on Sunday morning, the match has not sold out.

But regardless, it should prove a decent opportunity for the tour squad to regain their fitness against relatively weak opposition.

Union, who were only created in 2009, are in sixth position in the eight-strong Major League Soccer Eastern 16 points behind the leaders and two off the bottom.

Here is the pre-match press conference.
