LIVE COMMENTARY… FINAL SCORE Manchester United 4 Vs MLS All Stars 0, Red Bull Arena

 
It's all over - great win for United preseason.
 
88 mins: Beckham has an effort from a dead spot and hits the side netting. Oh so close, but yet so far for the Uber star.
 
86 mins: Nani let's some gas loose and shoots up the right flank, matched for speed by the tracking defender, though to be fair Nani is dribbling. Can we have a 90th minute Beckham special?
 
82 mins: can United make it five? The match has got a touch sluggish but with a four goal spread it's to be expected.
 
76 mins: Statistics talk... Manchester United has had six shots on goal and nailed four. Go figure! What a strike rate.
 
68 mins: 4-0 United! GOAL!! Video up. Welbeck's shot gets a deflection
 
64 mins: Omar Bravo pretty much misses an open goal for the MLS All Stars. Video up.
 
60 mins: Half chances at either end but nothing worth cutting for you to put up with the video. All Stars are sure to push to score now, which means it may be a goal-fest for United. Berbatov off, Michael Owen on. Not a bad sub to have on the bench.
 
52 mins: Berbatov scores! Video up.
 
50 mins: That's the first five minutes of the second spell done with and no shots on goal so far. Manchester United starting to show some pure class and put a cunning grip around the neck of the All Stars play.
 
47 mins: Wholesale changes for both sides as can be expected. Looking forward to seeing Berbatov some more. Man U have a free kick 32 yards just off centre and Rooney lines it up to go short, dummies for the variation and sends a short pass down the flank and the cross... disappoints.
 
46 mins: The second spell in the off.
 
Can the All Stars come back from a two goal deficit? I'm not sure as the brain is mush... this is my fourth update of the day and in need of some Red Bull myself.
 
HALFTIME Manchester United 2 Vs MLS All Stars 0 - all video of the half is up
 
45 mins: United doubles the lead just before the break as Park Ji-Sung smashes it home. Video up.
 
42 mins: Manchester United has the goal but honours in this match are fairly level. You'd give it to Man U cause Rooney might rip into a camera again - every day we wait... wait... wait... a bit like tick, tick, tick really!?
 
39 mins: Ohhh nearly a penalty and on first glance it looked like one but the replay tells otherwise so Man U weren't stiff. Rooney is so well behaved... around all these cameras and all... Video up.
 
37 mins: Rooney lets rip from way out and it's tipped by Sean Franklin in the sticks for the All Stars. Video up.
 
35 mins: It's been enterprising, attacking and entertaining football. A goal would be good from the Major League Soccer All Stars just to make things spicy... or even two!
 
32 mins: There's a break for an injury. This is going end to end and Sir Alex Ferguson looks very relaxed. He's looking around and thinking this is football utopia... great football, no people bashing each other. Though, the game isn't over yet.
 
28 mins: Well nearly a third the way through this one and you'd have to give it to the All Stars. They've romped back into the match and are unleashing devastating long range shots and it won't be long until one find the corner of the net.
 
22 mins: Ohhh Beckham has a crack and a goal is saved by the fingertips. Video up.
 
20 mins: Anderson finishes for Manchester United! Video up.
 
18 mins: Rooney finds himself free down the left and centres but it's cut out by the All Stars keeper. Video up.
 
17 mins: There's some good play in the centre of the pitch, just missing the quality delivery to finish. That will come with the class on the park. Omar Bravo mixes it up in Man U's box but can't get any goods.
 
14 mins: Manchester United already know they are in a game here. Then's plenty going on, and the space looks magnificent with each team playing a style that will dictate a very open game.
 
10 mins: Angled runs into the box have the All Stars scrambling. Ji-Sung being a handful down the right-hand edge.
 
7 mins: Sharp from Rooney at one end when a cross is delivered, but David Beckham at the other end was sharper and snapped off a shot. It flew just wide. Video up.
 
5 mins: It could very well be Old Trafford out there the way the football fans are chanting. Stars' Omar Cummings made a great run into the box but the angle was far to sharp to try and shoot - he did anyway, and won a corner.
 
3 mins: A long through ball tries to find Park Ji-Sung and you know him, he's still running to tray and catch that one.
 
1 min: We've rolled off and already Manchester United pushed forward and put pressure on the Stars goal.
 
Her we go football fans... some great names on the pitch. Bechkam and Rooney shaking hands prematch video up.
 
Kick off is not far away and we'll get highlights up as soon as something 'ripper' happens.
 
Hello and welcome to what should be an absolute thriller - Rooney magic? Beckham bending? Need more? Then read the probable starting line ups below.

The game will start soon and so will out coverage but in the mean time watch highlights of the Audi Cup final between Barcelona and Bayern Munich.

PreGame banter

Manchester United striker Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez was hospitalised overnight after suffering a mild concussion during training.

According to a statement released by the Premier League champions, the 23-year-old Mexican star was injured during a training session for today’s MLS All-Star game.

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson was to discuss the injury after Wednesday's game. Hernandez, who was not expected to play, will not attend the contest, the team said Wednesday.

Hernandez was the last Manchester United player to leave the pitch Tuesday night, walking off with a big smile after he did some extra running with a trainer.
