Manchester United held to 2-2 draw by Cerezo Osaka

Jul 27 2013, 4:16am CDT | by IANS

Tokyo, July 27 (IANS) Manchester United equalised with the last kick of the game to draw 2-2 with Cerezo Osaka as their pre-season Asia tour nears completion.

Tokyo, July 27 — Manchester United equalised with the last kick of the game to draw 2-2 with Cerezo Osaka as their pre-season Asia tour nears completion.

Wilfried Zaha's last-minute equaliser Friday saved new boss David Moyes the blushes and ensured that the Premier League champions didn't fall to their third defeat in four games on their Asia Tour, reports Xinhua.

Cerezo Osaka got on the scoresheet first in muggy conditions better suited to the local side.

United's Chris Smalling, in a school boy error-esque fashion, tried to dribble the ball out of his own penalty area and was unceremoniously dispossessed by Cerezo's Kenyu Sugimoto, who fired his left-footed shot hard and low past United's Lindegaard from 12-yards.

United struggled to hit back with ace-striker Robin van Persie, denied on two clear-cut chances by local keeper Kim Jin Hyeon and United's Japanese superstar Shinji Kagawa, blazed over from six-yards in the 42nd minute.

Kagawa redeemed himself in the second-half, however, having already missed a penalty, much to the dismay of the youngster's local and international fans, turning in a Ryan Giggs low cross at the near post to slot home.

But United failed to capitalise on their momentum and Cerezo re-took the lead midway through the second half.

Akumi Minamino collected the ball on the edge of the box and curled a sweetly struck right-footed shot into the top corner.

United looked set for defeat, but were rescued by substitute Zaha one minute into stoppage time with the teenager coolly redirecting a square pass into the back of the net from close range.

"I'm glad I somehow scored in the end. That's about it, really, " Kagawa said after the final whistle.

"I have to admit I was a bit uneasy about taking the penalty. But as it turns out, I managed to score in open play after that so maybe I was meant to miss it," he told local media.

"I know my teammates fairly well now so there is an understanding. The season's already started as far as I'm concerned. The race is on," he added.

Manchester United's Summer Signings Signal a Move Away from a 5-3-2

Sep 2 2014 7:40am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Manchester United’s summer signings provide Louis van Gaal with the chance to move away from the 5-3-2 formation that has seen his players struggle in the opening four games of the season. The system that served Van Gaal so well in pre-season has looked worryingly beatable, and United have picked up just two points from an available nine in the Premier League. United’s defence is vulnerable, the midfield has been ove ...

In the wake of last year's Moyesian apocalypse, Manchester United moved quickly to reassure the footballing world that they were merely sleeping dragons and not yet fallen giants.
