Triumphant Manchester United!

In front of Miami’s packed Sun Life Stadium with 51,014 people, this year’s edition of International Champions Cup, which Olympiacos successfully participated in, came to an end. In this great tournament’s final, Manchester United played against Liverpool and Louis van Gaal’s side won the title.

The «Reds», a side against which our team provided an excellent opening display despite our 1-0 defeat, had had a commanding way to start the match and took the lead as early as in 14’ minute following a precise penalty kick by Steven Gerrard, earned by Sterling under a challenge from Phil Jones.

United started to speed up its pace and managed to completely overturn the fixture in the second half. Wayne Rooney levelled the match in 55ʼ capitalizing on a Hernandez assist, whereas it was Mata, two minutes later, who gave the lead to the “Red Devils” for the first time.

Final 3-1 was shaped by a late (88’) Jesse Lingard goal that earned Louis van Gaal’s men the trophy and drew the tournament to a close.

It is worth mentioning that United ended the contest with no defeat, registering four wins from four (one on penalties)

MANCHESTER UNITED (van Gaal): De Gea, Jones, Smalling, Evans (46' Blackett), Valencia (9' Shaw), Young, Fletcher (46' Cleverly), Herrera (78' Lingard), Mata (69' Kagawa), Rooney, Hernandez (69' Nani).

LIVERPOOL (Rodgers): Mignolet, Kelly, Skrtel, Sakho (74' Toure), Johnson, Gerrard (63' Lucas), Allen (62' Chan), Henderson, Coutinho (77' Peterson), Sterling, Lambert (63' Ibe).
