The Ma­jor Lea­gue Soc­cer All-Stars 0 Man­chester Uni­ted 4, Red Bull Arena, Friendly Mat­ch, Ju­ly 27, 2011. Eng­lish Pre­mier Lea­gue Cham­pi­ons Man­chester Uni­ted eased to vic­tory as they de­feated The Ma­jor Lea­gue Soc­cer All-Stars 4-0 in New Jer­sey. For­mer Man­chester Uni­ted mid­fielder Da­vid Beck­ham played all ninety min­utes of the friendly en­counter for the All-Stars and the Los Angeles Galaxy play­er en­joyed a good mat­ch for the ho­me team. 

The friendly fix­ture ag­ainst Ma­jor Lea­gue Soc­cer All-Stars was un­doubtedly a good work out for Man­chester Uni­ted. Oli­veira An­der­son opened the scor­ing ac­count for Uni­ted when the all-ac­tion mid­field man power­ed the ball pa­st Faryd Mon­drag­on and in­to the bot­tom right-hand cor­ner of the net in the 20th min­ute of the con­test be­fore Ji-Sung Park ad­ded a sec­ond goal shortly be­fore the in­ter­val. And sev­en min­utes fol­low­ing the re­start Man­chester Uni­ted had their third goal as Di­m­it­ar Ber­batov latched onto a long punt for­ward from Way­ne Roo­ney be­fore beat­ing Mon­drag­on. Sub­sti­tute Dan­ny Wel­back then net­ted the fourth goal in the 68th min­ute wi­th an ef­fort from out­side the pen­alty area which took a de­flec­tion off Hou­s­ton Dy­namo de­fender Ge­off Camer­on on its way in­to the net. Un­for­tu­nately, Mex­ico in­ter­na­tion­al Javi­er Her­nandez was ab­sent as the twenty-three-year-old stri­ker had suf­fered con­cus­sion dur­ing train­ing at Red Bull Arena the day be­fore.
