Video: Xmas challenge

The Reds got in the festive mood recently as the Manchester United Christmas Challenge returned to Carrington.

A trio of first-teamers - David De Gea, Patrice Evra and Darren Fletcher - took on coaches and legends in a series of skills games hosted by stadium announcer Alan Keegan.

The first test, entitled Deck the Ball and Yule Feel Jolly, required the competitors to fire footballs through bauble-shaped holes of various sizes to earn points.

Representing the legends were Bryan Robson, Quinton Fortune and Mickey Thomas, while Rene Meulensteen, Tony Strudwick and Richard Hawkins formed the coaches’ team.

Log in to see how they fared, and see the second part of the challenge on Thursday.
