Blog: Reds in Hangzhou

Sunday 26 July (all times are local, 7 hours ahead of UK)

21:54 – And that's full-time. It was a walk in the park for United... and now it's a case of a quick shower, a bite to eat and then onto a plane bound for Munich. I hope you've enjoyed all my blogs on the Asia Tour - in Malaysia, Korea and finally this one from China. Look out for more from me when we get to Germany. Goodbye for now, thanks for reading.

21:53
Greentown 2-8 United. Pick that out! Brazilian forward Voldo fires a rocket through Jonny Evans' legs and past Foster. I'd like to say it adds a bit of respectability to the score but I'd be lying.

21:50 Greentown 1-8 United. Giggsy grabs a hat-trick within half-an-hour! This is all too easy. He almost walked that one into the net. This isn't really the ideal preparation for the Audi Cup, but at least the Chinese fans have seen a few goals.

21:44 – If there's one person United fans – and players – would love to see on the scoresheet it's Anderson. And the Brazilian almost made everyone's dreams come true. A shimmy here, a jink there... and then a gorgeous curling effort that beat the goakeeper and rattled off the post. So close! He'll have to wait a bit longer to net his first goal in United colours...

21:40 – Oh dear. Patrice Evra won't ever get an easier chance! His good mate Ji-sung Park unselfishly teed him up but the left back hit the post from six yards out. It's the second time Pat's hit that upright – the first was a decidedly more spectacular effort from 30 yards.

21:37 Greentown 1-7 United. That's given the Greentown fans something to cheer about! Substitute Wang Hong You rose well to power home a header from a corner out on the left. Are we about to see the most unlikely comeback in history? No.

21:25 Greentown 0-7 United. It's another goal for Ryan. This one wasn't quite as spectacular,
