Video: Out-of-favour Man Utd winger Nani scores two goals against Crewe
Fans who snapped up early tickets for last night’s match between a Manchester United XI and Crewe might not have held out much hope for seeing star names since the first-team squad was in Hong Kong finishing its pre-season tour.
As it happened, Nemanja Vidic, Antonio Valencia and Nani were all returning from injury and featured in the game. Portuguese winger Nani made a particularly significant impression, scoring both goals in a 2-0 win.
The 26-year-old has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford this summer, but goals like this will give David Moyes food for thought.
