Edwin van der Sar saves three penalties, as Manchester United beat Chelsea in the Community Shield.
In a physical game at the ‘New Wembley’, Manchester United came up trumps in a penalty shoot out, after the game was drawn 1-1 in normal playing time.
Veteran Ryan Giggs, wearing Reebok Sprintfit‘s opened the scoring for Manchester United on 35, scoring his first goal at Wembley. But Chelsea were level again, shortly before half time when Florent Malouda, wearing Total 90 Laser‘s, took Ashley Cole’s pass and fired home at an angle.
The game was played with a physical edge, and both teams had chances to score in the second half. Shaun Wright-Phillips was getting a lot of the ball for Chelsea, but his final ball was often lacking.
The game went to penalties and whilst United fired all their penalties home, Van Der Sar didn’t let one past his beanpole frame, saving from Claudio Pizarro, Frank Lampard and Shaun Wright Phillips.
In our preview we picked out the challenge between Cristiano Ronaldo and Ashley Cole. Despite United winning the game, Man of the Match went to Ashley Cole, so perhaps Cole can give Ronnie a wink 😉 on his way out of Wembley.
