2016.07.22 | Man Utd-Bor Dortmund 1-4



Manchester United today played the first out of two games in the International Champions Cup in Asia and unfortunately lost 1-4 to a better and stronger Borussia Dortmund.


The opponent had started their pre-season earlier than Man Utd, having already played four games before this one. Henrich Mkhitaryan scored Man Utd's only goal (his first in the red shirt) after a nice selfless assist by youngster Marcus Rashford.


Man Utd's starting line-up:

Johnstone, Valencia, Bailly, Jones, Shaw, Blind, Herrera, Mata, Mkhitaryan, Lingard, Memphis.



The stadium in Shanghai was completely red with Manchester United-shirts, the size of the Man Utd-fanbase in Asia showed itself in great colors.


Listen to what manager José Mourinho said after the game:


As you probably know by know, Zlatan is not with the team in Asia and will join the team next week.
