Squad announced for Sweden trip

Manchester United will take a strong squad to Sweden to face AIK Fotboll in the Reds' final match of Tour 2013 presented by Aon.

Nemanja Vidic will skipper the side after missing the first leg of the tour due to a sciatica complaint. He's spent the last few weeks working on his fitness at the Aon Training Complex.

Wayne Rooney misses the trip to Sweden, however, after sustaining an injury in a behind-closed-doors friendly at the weekend.

"Wayne hurt his shoulder in a fall during a match on Saturday," David Moyes said. "It's not too serious and I don't expect it to keep him out for too long.

"I'm disappointed he's missing the game because we were keen to get him back involved and ready to play."

Tickets for the match with AIK are now available at half price and can be purchased online now or bought on the gate on the night.

Travelling squad: Lindegaard, Amos; Rafael, Evans, Evra, Jones, Smalling, Vidic; Anderson, Bebe, Carrick, Giggs, Nani, Zaha; Henriquez, Kagawa, van Persie, Welbeck
