15:52 That's it! The referee has checked his watch and called time on proceedings at Wembley, where United have beaten Wigan to win the FA Community Shield. A trophy presentation will follow shortly. (MF)

15:48 Four minutes of added-time are due to be played and, at this score, United have all-but-won the game. It's not a huge deal, but it's certainly a great way to start the season and a new era at the club. If there's a trophy up for grabs, why not win it? That's what I always say. (MF)

15:46 Substitute Roger Espinoza has been cautioned for an enthusiastic challenge on Tom Cleverley. (MF) 

15:45 Chicharito might not be in the squad today, but he'd surely appreciate goings-on in the Wembley crowd just now. A Mexican wave is rippling around the ground, with varying degrees of participation in different areas of the stadium. (BA)
