Manchester United overcame Real Madrid 3-1 in a friendly match last night, and thoroughly impressed over the 90 minute match. Cristiano Ronaldo wasn’t expected to play any part of the game, but surprisingly Ancelotti sent him on with fifteen minutes to go, and its worth noting that Tyler Blackett did very well marking him.
It was only a pre-season friendly, but its hard not to get excited about that performance. Louis van Gaal had the players pushing high up the pitch, moving the ball quickly and creating excellent chances. Roll on the 16th of August.
