Man U down A-League team 5-1 in friendly
SYDNEY (AP) -Jesse Lingard and Danny Welbeck scored two goals each to lead Manchester United to a comprehensive 5-1 preseason victory over a combined A-League `All Stars' team Saturday to give David Moyes his first victory as manager at the club.
Dutch star Robin Van Persie scored a late goal to the delight of the more than 82,000 fans at Sydney's former Olympic stadium.
Albanian striker Besart Berisha scored the lone goal for the A-League team in the second half.
Welbeck and Ryan Giggs set up the opening goal for midfielder Lingard in the 11th minute after several close chances for the English champions in their first visit to Sydney since 1999.
Striker Welbeck doubled the lead in the 34th, again off a Giggs pass, to send United into halftime with a 2-0 lead.
