    • 90+3' FT: A-League All Stars 1-5 Manchester United
    • 90+1' Great move from United, involving Cleverley, Zaha and substitute Januzaj who misses from the six-yard box.
    • 90' ADDED TIME: Three minutes.
    • 89' STAT: It's 18-2 to United on corner-kicks.
    • 86' GOAL! 5-1 United. Guess who? Robin van Persie. He was denied once by Theo, but the ball returned again to him and he didn't miss second time around.
    • 82' SUB (A-L): Beuchamp/Emerton off, Chapman/Currusca on
    • 81' You know things are quiet on the pitch when there's a consecutive Mexican wave ripple around the ANZ stadium.
    • 77' Fabio bombs forward from left-back and tries a sneaky, curling right-foot shot which goes into the arms of Theo.
    • 75' SUB (MUFC): Fabio on, Evra off --- the captain is now van Persie.
    • 74' JUST WIDE! Zaha comes so close to a United goal. The referee played the advantage rule and the winger misses the post by inches.
    • 73' Lingard and Evra combining there, but the Frenchman had already run out of energy for his cross by the time he had overlapped!
    • 72' SUB (A-L): Ifill, Williams on, Broich, Berisha off.
    • 70' SUB (MUFC): Januzaj, Anderson on, Carrick, Welbeck off.
    • 69' GOAL! Job done for Welbeck. Near-post header to van Persie's corner kick and he makes it 4-1 to Manchester United.
    • 68' Great power from Welbeck, rounding the GK, but again, his shot was blocked as the ball was ready to find the net. Beuchamp got there in time!
    • 66' Welbeck has dropped back one into Giggs' role with RVP leading the attack. No chances for the Dutchman, just yet.
    • 64' Good news for United, Evra returns.
    • 64' ATTENDANCE: 83,127
    • 62' Ouch! A pretty heavy clash involving Evra on the near-side. That was a sore-one. Getting some treatment as we speak.
    • 60' SUB (A-L/MUFC): McGlinchey/Rose off, Grant/Bridge on---Giggs off, van Persie on.
    • 58' There's a little ripple of excitement as Robin van Persie gets his some instructions from assistant coach Phil Neville.
    • 56' Zaha's trickery catches Beaucamp off-guard. He fouls the former Palace man inside the box, but the referee gives a corner-kick.
    • 54' GOAL! Excellent strike from Lingard. It's 3-1 United. The ball fell to the 20-year-old at the near-side corner of the box and he just thumps it into the top corner.
    • 51' GOAL! Berisha finally gets his goal for the All Stars. His right-foot shot seemed to bobble past Lindegaard and into the bottom-right corner.
    • 49' Great play from Zaha on the left-wing, crossing low for Welbeck who wins a corner-kick. Nearly a third.
    • 48' Berisha coming close again. This time, he dragged his shot wide of the far-post with Lindegaard beaten.
    • 45' SUB (Manchester United): Michael Keane on, Rio Ferdinand off
    • 45' Plenty of changes at half-time. I'll give you all the information seperately. United kick-off for 2nd half.
    • 11:26 @rossdunbar93 - Welbeck has had an excellent first-half. A fine goal and has led the line with conviction. Great range of runs, moves, link-up etc. #MUFC ... Thoughts?
    • 45+1' HT: A-League All Stars 0-2 Manchester United (Lingard, Welbeck)
    • 45' ADDED TIME: One minute.
    • 43' MISS! Great move from Manchester United. Welbeck spin, run and shot across goal which is saved by Covic.
    • 41' Ferdinand stands up to block from Berisha. Good chance for the A-League XI who could've been on the scoresheet so far.
    • 39' Great block from Boogaard on the goal-line. Danny Welbeck nipped in ahead, rounded the GK and was ready to slot in before the defender got in-front of the striker. Top defending.
    • 33' GOAL! 2-0 United. Danny Welbeck with a neat right-foot finish, completing the move which involved Lingard and Ryan Giggs. Easy stuff for the Red Devils.
    • 29' Another half-chance for the hosts. Beauchamp's deep cross was met by a fresh-air strike from Berisha on the edge of the 18-yard-box.
    • 26' Lindegaard gets down quickly to parry from Bojic who managed to get a shot away. It looked as if he was falling back, as he struck.
    • 23' Zaha has looked good so far. A really nice piece of wing-play, using a step-over, then shifting to the right, but his cross missed everyone.
    • 18' Liam Miller also a familiar name to Scots. He played with Celtic, before joining United. He's wearing the No.10 for the All-Stars.
    • 16' Evra comes close again. He has a fantastic leap from set-pieces and with a free header, he really should have scored.
    • 15' United on top in the first quarter of an hour. Some pretty suspect defending from the All-Stars.
    • 12' That was a super effort from Broich. He broke into space about 25 yards out, but his shot was just too high.
    • 10' GOAL! Manchester United ease into an early lead. Giggs' pass was dummied by Zaha, leading to Lingard roaming in on goal and slotting cooly with his right-foot. Fine goal.
    • 8' Early possession: 69-31 to United.
    • 6' First save from Covic with Lingard playing in Zaha who shot at the A-League GK's legs. Patrice Evra also comes close from the resulting corner-kick.
    • 4' Corner for United at the other end, too. Tom Cleverley's deep cross is met by Phil Jones, who looked to be climbing over the defender, but headed into the keeper's arms.
    • 2' McGlinchey will be familiar to Scots having played on loan at Motherwell and being born in the UK. He's running well and just won a corner-kick for the All-Stars.
    • 1' Early touches for new MUFC signing Wilfred Zaha. He's on the right-hand side for United today.
    • 0' KICK-OFF: The All-Stars, in all-blue, kick-off.
    • 10:35 The teams are out! It's the like a MUFC home game .... just in Australia instead!
    • 10:32 The two teams in the tunnel and the MUFC players getting a very warm reception from the team mascots.
    • 10:31 @DuckerTheTimes: ANZ Stadium where #mufc are soon to kick off against the A League All Stars pic.twitter.com/tlSbWVho6z
    • 10:28 Having just hosted some Aussie rugby, the ANZ Stadium in Sydney is packed to the rafters. Looks like a great turn-out there for the game.
    • 10:19 TEAMS: United XI: Lindegaard, Rafael, Jones, Ferdinand, Evra, Zaha, Cleverley, Carrick, Giggs, Lingard & Welbeck… Subs: De Gea, Anderson, Fabio, van Persie, Keane, Januzaj. /// All Stars XI: Covic, Bojic, Beauchamp, Boogaard, Topor-Stanley, Rose, McGlinchey, Emerton, Miller, Broich, Berisha
