Di Maria shines for Argentina
Four Reds were on international friendly duty on Wednesday and none shone brighter than Manchester United's record new signing Angel Di Maria, whose masterclass included a goal and three assists to help Argentina beat Germany 4-2.
The £59.7million capture, who completed 85 impressive minutes in Düsseldorf, started alongside Reds team-mate Marcos Rojo as Argentina faced Germany in a repeat of this summer's World Cup final, which Joachim Löw's side won in Brazil, of course.
Operating wide on the right for Gerardo Martino's men, Di Maria's energy, creativity and wand of a left foot were put to devastating use. In the 20th minute his stunning outside-of-the-boot pass enabled Sergio Aguero to make it 1-0. Then on 39 minutes he was at it again, racing onto a pass down the right and floating an inviting cross to Erik Lamela, who volleyed into the roof of the net to make it 2-0.
Immediately after the second half restart, Di Maria's deep free-kick from the left was headed home by Federico Fernandez, then two minutes later he got on the scoresheet himself, coolly dinking the ball over the onrushing Manuel Neuer in a one-on-one.
Rojo couldn't help Argentina to a clean sheet as Andre Schürrle pulled a goal back for Germany on 52 minutes, while the world champions scored again through Mario Götze's deflected effort on 78 minutes. However, Di Maria's damage had already been done.
Closer to home, Wayne Rooney led England out at Wembley for the first time as the new national skipper as they took on Norway, while Phil Jones completed the full 90 minutes at centre-back. Despite a lowly 40,181 crowd, Rooney inspired the team to a 1-0 win by lashing home a 68th-minute penalty before being replaced by former club-mate Danny Welbeck a minute later.
3 assits and 1 goal
After reading the article, Im still not sure why he left...
But man, every disowned ex-devil is taking a dig at their former club. lol glad he's gone.
Cristiano Ronaldo interview: I want to come back to Manchester United
Real Madrid superstar talks of his love for the city of Manchester and his former club and also says they have bought well in the summer transfer window Cristiano Ronaldo has revealed he would like to return to Manchester United.
The Real Madrid superstar, in an interview with Telegraph Sport, spoke of his love for the city in which he developed into one of the world's best players and, despite the club's current problems, said it is his wish to go back.
"I love Manchester," he said. "Everyone knows that. Manchester is in my heart.
"I left many good friends there. The supporters are amazing and I wish I can come back one day."
Ronaldo has spoken previously of his dismay at the sale of his former Real team-mate Angel di Maria to United, and says the Premier League club have also done well to sign striker Radamel Falcao, an old foe in Madrid derbies against Atletico.
"He is a very good player - I think United did very well," said Ronaldo.
"He will be a fantastic buy. United have not started well, so they need quality players. And Falcao is a quality player."
Ronaldo coming back Di Maria is the push factor?
Think he super busy song of the RM management! lol...

Cantona was also damn arrogant..
Like what the other bros said.. Maradona, Romario, Zlatan were also very arrogant on the pitch..
CR7 is a really good player.. He can score in both La Liga and BPL.. Bale is surprisingly very good too.. But of course Bale is not that arrogant at the moment..
Arrogan is what u need to be the best, even Alex ferguson, Mourinho has it.....with that ur opponent afraid of u....u torment them....terrorist them....they foul on u....you create more space for your team mate....and goal came from everywhere.....all these is what MU needed right now.....Looney earn 300k/wk but has none of the above....nobody including Swansea and Burnley are afraid of them....that's why no euro game this year...
Sad to say this team still has no heart yet.
