Manchester United flop Anderson made his debut for Internacional against Cruzeiro last night, and his spell back in Brazil got off to a terrible start.

The 26-year-old, whose contract with United was terminated in February, came on as a substitute in the second half, and stepped up to take the penalty in the 74th minute.

But things didn't go to plan...his effort was saved by the Cruzeiro goalkeeper Bruno Gassi, and the match ended 0-0.


Anderson was at United for eight years

  Anderson joined United for £26m from Porto back in 2007, and was dubbed one of Brazil's hottest prospects, but failed to impress during his eight years at the club.
