AON Tour 2013: Moyes tastes first success with Red Devils

Welbeck-GoalManchester United put behind the shocking defeat suffered in Bangkok for their first match, as the Red Devils shone in Australia earlier today, and easily saw off the A-League All Stars on a 1-5 scoreline in front of a packed ANZ Stadium, with83127 fans turning up for this preseason friendly. Moyes must be very happy with his first success with the Red Devils, as he mixed the young generation with some of the more experienced lads once again, and this time had the golden boot of last season also available for use, Robin Van Persie.

Youngster Lingard scored twice (11th and 55th minute respectively), along with Welbeck (34th and 70th minute), and RvP joined the celebrations on the 87th minute with the 5th goal, while earlier, on the 52nd minute, Berisha scored for the All Stars, but it turned out to be only a consolation goal for them in the end.  Next friendly for United will be held in 3 days in Yokohama against the Yokohama F-Marinos team.

United line-up:

Lindegaard; Rafael, Ferdinand (M Keane 46), Jones, Evra (Fabio 76); Zaha, Carrick (Anderson 71), Cleverley, Lingard; Giggs (van Persie 62), Welbeck (Januzaj 71)
