The Manchester United manager, Sir Alex Ferguson, was pleased for his team after yesterday's 5-1 friendly win at Clyde. Their goals came from Kleberson, Paul Scholes, Liam Miller and two from Ruud an Nistelrooy.

"They enjoyed it - 22 players have had 45 minutes of football," said Ferguson.

Tottenham gave a start to Teemu Tainio, their new Finnish midfielder, and blooded Tom Huddlestone and Wayne Routledge from the bench as they drew 2-2 against Argentina's Boca Juniors in their Peace Cup match in Suwon. Jermain Defoe and Mido scored their goals.
