Key dates in June for United fans

Tuesday 04 June 2019 13:36

The 2018/19 season may be over but the action doesn’t stop at Manchester United. With international games, birthdays, anniversaries and the 2019/20 Premier League fixtures announced throughout the month of June, there’s plenty for Reds fans to keep an eye out for…

1: Former Red, and current West Ham striker, Javier Hernandez turned 31 at the beginning of the month.

2: Paul Pogba played 90 minutes for France in their 2-0 friendly win against Bolivia. 

6: It’s the first anniversary of Diogo Dalot’s arrival at the club from FC Porto. Meanwhile, in his native Portugal, Jesse Lingard and Marcus Rashford could be involved when England and the Netherlands meet in the second UEFA Nations League semi-final at 19:45 BST.
Jesse and Marcus are the Reds' two representatives in Gareth Southgate's England squad.
7: The Women’s World Cup kicks off in France. United Women captain Alex Greenwood is taking part for England, as too is Abbie McManus, who has signed a pre-contract agreement to join the Reds ahead of the 2019/20 season. Also involved in the World Cup will be Scotland duo Kirsty Smith and Lizzie Arnot. Elsewhere, Alexis Sanchez and his Chilean team-mates will play their final warm-up match ahead of the Copa America when they face Haiti at 00:00 BST. David De Gea is expected to play for Spain in their Euro 2020 qualifier against the Faroe Islands, which kicks off at 19:45 BST. Finally, on a busy day for the Reds, we’ll be wishing former midfielder Lou Macari a happy 70th birthday.

8: This day marks a year since Casey Stoney was appointed Manchester United Women head coach – and what a first 12 months it has been. Also, Pogba’s France take on Turkey in a Euro 2020 qualifier, while Romelu Lukaku could be in action for Belgium against Kazakhstan. Elsewhere, Scott McTominay may feature for Scotland in Steve Clarke’s first game as manager when they host Cyprus. All three games kick-off at 19:45 BST.

9: The Reds could have representatives in the UEFA Nations League final at Porto’s Estadio do Dragao stadium at 19:45 BST, or the third place play-off which kicks off earlier in the day at 14:00 BST. Should England make the final, Lingard and Rashford will be hoping to follow on from their fantastic World Cup campaign in 2018. The Lionesses are also in action when they face Scotland Women at 17:00 BST in the Women’s World Cup - the game could see a few United stars pitted against each other in Nice.
10: David De Gea could once again feature for Spain when they host Sweden in a Euro 2020 qualifier, while Pogba and his French colleagues face Andorra at the same time. It is also a significant birthday for one of the stars of our Treble-winning team, as Ronny Johnsen turns 50 on this day.

11: Two United players could lock horns when Lukaku’s Belgium meet McTominay’s Scotland in Brussels in a Euro 2020 qualifier which begins at 19:45 BST. In the Women's World Cup, United fans could get a first glimpse of Jackie Groenen, who has signed a pre-contract agreement to join the women's team ahead of the new season. She will hopefully be involved for the Netherlands when they take on New Zealand at 14:00 BST.

13: United's Premier League fixtures for the 2019/20 season will be announced, and revealed on and our official app at 09:00 BST. Last season, we started at home with a 2-1 win against Leicester City, which was our 18th opening-day victory from 27 in the Premier League era.

14: In the Women’s World Cup, Scotland face Japan at 14:00 BST and, six hours later, England play Argentina in the second round of group games.

18: Alexis will be hoping to guide Chile to their third consecutive Copa America success this summer and they begin the defence of their crown against Japan in Sao Paulo at 00:00 BST. Elsewhere, another international tournament is beginning as England Under-21s take on France at 20:00 BST in the Under-21 European Championship. Goalkeeper Dean Henderson is expected to feature for Aidy Boothroyd’s side against Les Bleus.

19: England Lionesses and Scotland Women face their final games in Group C at the Women’s World Cup. Phil Neville’s team will meet Japan at 20:00 BST and, at the same time, the Scots will play Argentina at the Parc de Princes - the stage of United’s memorable comeback victory against Paris Saint-Germain earlier this year. Meanwhile, former Red Kleberson turns 40 on this date. The Brazilian played for United between 2003 and 2005, making 30 appearances in that time.

20: Groenen and her Dutch team-mates will play their last group game at the Women's World Cup, against Canada Women at 17:00 BST.

21: England Under-21s are back in action as they take on Romania Under-21s at 17:30 BST. It will also be exactly a year to the day since Fred joined United from Shakhtar Donetsk. Finally, on this date, Stuart Pearson, a member of our 1977 FA Cup-winning squad, will turn 70.
