[Club Friendly] Kitchee 2-5 Manchester United

Kitchee win respect despite losing to Manchester United

Manchester United completed their Asian Tour with a comfortable 5-2 win over Kitchee at Hong Kong stadium last night. In Rooney's absence, forwards Danny Welbeck and Wilfried Zaha and a couple of young attacking midfielders, Adnan Januzaj and Jesse Lingard, took the chance to impress, each scoring a goal. Defender Chris Smalling got the other. However, respect should be given to Kitchee as Lam Ka-wai whipped in an unstoppable left-foot drive from 25 metres before Alex Akande beat a couple of United defenders to score another goal that alert defence of the visitors. "I'm taking away a great experience of my first trip with Manchester United in general and what the club means around the world. the United new manager David Moyes said. "They're incredibly professional and I can see why they're champions because of the way they conduct themselves, the way they go about their business and I've been very impressed."


Dzeko score as City win Asia Trophy

Manchester City beat Sunderland 1-0 in the final of Barclays Asia Trophy thanks to a superb first-half volley from Bosnian striker Edin Džeko. City's goal came in the ninth minute, Džeko volleying in viciously from 25 metres out after a Sunderland defensive header bounced perfectly. That seemed to set the match up perfectly for the crowd of 40,000, but there was not a great deal to keep them entertained as the rain got heavier and heavier. They could have doubled their lead when Sunderland's Craig Gardner headed against his own post just before half-time. One goal was all the fans got however both teams but the picture was not come after the break. In another match of the day, Tottenham Hotspur thrashed their club partner South China 6-0 in the third place play-off. Jermain Defoe completed a hat-trick in the second half while Clint Dempsey and Andros Townsend also got on the score sheet in front of 40,000 fans at Hong Kong Stadium.

City meet Sunderland in Asia Trophy final

South China suffered a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Manchester City under new head coach Cheung Po-chun in the first round of Barclays Asia Trophy 2013 at Hong Kong stadium last night. After the departure of right-back Lee Chi-ho and keeper Yapp Hung-fai, Cheung brings three new faces, including Aender Naves, who played for Wofoo Tai Po under coaching of Cheung in the Season 2011-12, and also set special training for the preparation of the Asia Trophy. On the other hand, Manchester City arrived Hong Kong from their pre-season tour in South Africa without a win after two games. City had Bosnia international Edin Dzeko to thank as he headed home a James Milner cross midway through the first half. There was no doubt that City was the better side, but they seemed to lack the sharpness needed to finish the job. "We have improved from our matches in South Africa and for me whether we drew or we lost, it is not that important. Although we scored just one goal, we had a lot of opportunities." Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini said. In another match of the day, Sunderland came back from behind to beat Tottenham Spurs 3-1. As a result, Manchester City will meet Sunderland in the final, while South China will face Tottenham Hotspur in the third place playoff on July 27.
