I should really start being a little more creative with my titles for these posts. Louis Van Gaal continued to draw Manchester United fans out of their uncomfortable modes of modesty as his side beat AS Roma 3-2 in a pre-season friendly in Denver’s Mile High Stadium.
Wayne Rooney emptied another spade of dirt onto the memory of the World Cup with a two goal display, the pick of which was the below strike from outside the box. The 28-year old striker is looking sharp in the build-up to the Premier League and Van Gaal appears to have re-introduced some of the swagger which rapidly drained away under David Moyes, following their7-0 drubbing of MLS side LA Galaxy.
However, there was a better goal scored in this game but you’ll have to go here to check it out.
