Hey, we’re just trying to put last night’s kickoff of the World Football Challenge in the most positive light for the underdog.
New England actually carved out the game’s first chance, a flying header by Shalrie Joseph that went juuuust wide of Man U’s far post in the 12th minute.
But the Red Devils controlled possession all the way through and in the second half, after both teams made substitutions, things went off the rails for the Revolution, and the visitors cruised to a 4–1 win.
That turn in the plot may have had something to do with the fact that when the teams went to their benches, Man U produced Ryan Giggs, Michael Owen, and Park Ji-Sung, while New England came up with Otto Loewy and Ryan Guy. May have….
In any case, the Red Devils created some pretty slick goals, especially the fourth one, which was nothing short of dazzling.
To the highlights:
United’s next U.S. stop is in Chicago, where they’ll take on the Fire at Soldier Field on July 23rd (5:00 p.m. ET, ESPN2).
