Andreas Pereira accepts the opening game of Manchester United's International Champions Cup campaign, against Inter Milan, was the toughest test of pre-season so far, with Tottenham up next on Thursday in Shanghai.

After coming off the bench to add plenty of passion and energy to the proceedings, the Brazil international was happy to take three points from a difficult fixture in sweltering conditions.

Mason Greenwood scored the all-important goal after 76 minutes to condemn the Italian outfit to defeat.

Greenwood scores again as United beat Inter


Ole's Reds earn a 1-0 win over the Italian side with a superb goal from 17-year-old substitute Mason Greenwood.

"Even after the game has finished, we did some running so it's important, firstly, that we are fit," he told MUTV.

"I've enjoyed it and I feel fit. Training has been very hard. We enjoy it when we win games, so that's what we want.

"It was the toughest game. It was very, very warm. They were a very difficult team to play, they played very defensively. But it was a good goal from Mason and it was good to get the win."

Greenwood's strike was a beauty and was further evidence of his obvious potential, with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer showing his faith in young players.

"He's very good at scoring goals," added Andreas. "He's doing well. Hopefully, he can keep it up and I'm sure more goals will come.

"I know him already from the youth [teams] and, in the box, he's very good. The manager gives a lot of confidence to the players and the young players and that's very good for us. We have to take that on board and try to impress him and [the other] players as well.

"I'm looking forward to playing in front of the Chinese fans now. It will be a difficult game against Tottenham but, hopefully, we can get the win."
