Video: Manchester United record surprise win over Barcelona
Manchester United finally managed to halt the Barcelona carousel – unfortunately it came 63 days too late for them to get a major trophy out of their accomplishment.
Nani opened the scoring after being played in behind Barca’s defence and slotting the ball through Victor Valdes’ legs. The Catalan giants equalised with yet another spectacular goal from Thiago Alcantara, before Michael Owen popped up with a winner for United.
Sir Alex Ferguson got revenge of sorts for May’s Champions League final defeat at Wembley as his side recorded a 2-1 win at the FedEx Field in Maryland. The result ensures United completed their US tour with a 100 per cent win record.
Barca have the defence that they are not quite as far into their pre-season preparations as United, and that they were without Lionel Messi, Xavi, Carlos Puyol or Gerard Pique in their starting line-up.
