The Reds' Under-15s collected a first victory in the Manchester United Premier Cup as Gamba Osaka and U.Catolica reached the final of the competition.
Tommy Martin's side defeated Keilor Park 2-0 and face Hubei FA in their final fixture during the Nike-backed tournament on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, Gamba and U.Catolica get the opportunity to play at the Shanghai Stadium ahead of United's clash with Shenhua with both games due to be screened live by MUTV.
The Japanese side saw off Santos 1-0 in the semi-finals with the Chilean outfit knocking out Inter Milan on penalties at the same stage. It is the first time that a club from Japan has ever gone so far in the competition and their shoot-out victory against CF Pachuca in the last eight ended the reign of the Mexicans.
