Rooney sets up 2 as Manchester United beats MLS
Harrison: Wayne Rooney set up two goals and Park Ji-sung danced around a defender for another as Manchester United put on another show during its tour of the United States with a 4-0 victory over the MLS All Stars.
Anderson, Dimitar Berbatov and Danny Welbeck also scored for the reigning English Premier League champions, who have outscored their opponents 18-2 to win the opening four games on their US tour.
"I liked the result," manager Alex Ferguson said.
Ferguson`s side will wrap up its preseason tour in Washington on Saturday against Barcelona in a rematch of the Champions League final which the Spanish team won 3-1. Then it`s back to England for the Community Shield game and the start of another season the following week.
The final score might have been a little misleading because David Beckham and his MLS teammates had a couple of good shots at goal, but make no mistake Manchester United was far superior in the game at Red Bull Arena that drew a sellout crowd of 26,760.
The Reds didn`t have a lot of chances against the MLS, but when they did they were lethal, especially with Rooney setting up the goals.
In the United States, football fans have seen Rooney scoring again and again in replays of his bicycle kick in a match last season. This time, he was perfect with his passing.
"He`s a good passer of the ball," Ferguson said.
Like most midseason classics, this one started with a show.
Parachutists floated into the double-decked arena that is in its second year of operation, fireworks lit the sky and a helicopter flyover all preceded the start of the game.
