Manchester United beat a Europe XI to celebrate the European Union's 50th anniversary and of the Red Devils' 50 years in European competition.
United were 4-1 up by the interval thanks to a Wayne Rooney double, Wes Brown's close-range finish and Cristiano Ronaldo's stunning free-kick.

Florent Malouda's left-footed shot made it 2-1, while Zlatan Ibrahimovic missed a penalty with United leading 3-1.

El-Hadji Diouf came off the bench to score a header and an impudent penalty.

The match, watched by a 74,343 crowd, raised 1.25m for charity.

I watched the first half and it was pretty good IMO. Ronaldo's free-kick had me in awe, did you see the amount of swerve that was on his shot? All I could say to that was WOW!

Also, did Andy Cole play any of the second half?
