Man United beats Cosmos in Scholes testimonial
Paul Scholes opened the scoring in his testimonial match on
Friday as Manchester United beat the New York Cosmos 6-0 at Old
Scholes fired home a trademark shot from 20 meters and England
striker Wayne Rooney converted a penalty to give a full-strength
United a 2-0 lead at the break.
With a Community Shield match looming against local rivals
Manchester City on Sunday, United manager Alex Ferguson reshuffled
his side for the second half.
The Cosmos, watched by its director of football – former United
great Eric Cantona, went on to concede further goals from Anderson,
Danny Welbeck and Mame Biram Diouf (2).
