Nani and Owen avenge CL final loss

Manchester United have avenged their Wembley defeat with a 2-1 victory over their arch-rivals Barcelona at Fed-ex field, Washington. This gave United fans something to cheer about after their teams demolition in the Champions League final.

Classic counter attacking play proved to be the base for the win of United. With Barca committed forward for most of the game and dominating possession United replied with classic counter attacks. Nani proved to be the game maker for United and gave them a lead when he beat the offside trap off a wonderful Welbeck pass and slid it in between the legs of Victor Valdes.
The second half started same as the first one but in the 70th minute, the new Barcelona sensation Thiago blasted a thunderous shot past De Gea to give his side an equaliser. However United got the lead back on the 76th minuted when Cleverley intercepted a stray pass and slid it to Owen. Owen made no mistake and United went up 2-1.
This win doesn't make a high importance and doesn't erase the memories of the CL final defeat but made sure United kept their 100% win record on their tour of the States scoring 20 goals while conceding only 3.
Next game: Community Shield match against Manchester City. Come on " The Red Devils"
