    Terrible penalty takers from Chelsea!

    They are shooting too close to and at a comfortably level for the goalie as well. As for the power, it is not too powerful either.

    Default Battle of father n son!

    Report: Peterboro 1 Utd XI 3

    Owen Hargreaves made his first appearance for United as a young XI overcame a Peterborough team managed by Sir Alex Ferguson's son Darren.

    The recent signing from Bayern Munich came on at half-time as a sub for Darren Gibson, who'd starred in the Reds' win at Doncaster less than 24 hours earlier.

    Hargreaves was a busy figure but he was arguably overshadowed by the scorer of United's stunning third goal, Dong Fangzhuo. The Chinese striker performed a skilful Ronaldo-esque manouvere inside the box before firing the ball home in the 77th minute. This came just five minutes after Richie Jones made it 2-1 when another Dong shot was parried.

    Adam Eckersley opened the scoring for United with an angled drive in the 23rd minute, only for Peterborough's Rene Howe to equalise with a similar strike four minutes after the break.

    Darren Ferguson revealed on BBC Radio Cambridge he was expecting his father to field a slightly different side.

    "There was a bit of confusion because we thought Fletcher and Silvestre were coming down to play," said Ferguson junior.

    "Hargreaves, Pique, Lee Martin and others were out there, though. They've got quality throughout the squad. It wasn't an overly competitive game but thoroughly enjoyable. It was a good day for the whole family."

    United XI: Heaton, Simpson, A. Eckersley, Shawcross (Bardsley, 46), J. Evans (S. Evans, 79), Pique (Lea, 46), R. Jones, Gibson (Hargreaves, 46), Campbell, Dong, Martin.

    With thanks to Cliff Butler, reporting from Peterborough.

    Giggs: We deserved to win

    Ryan Giggs says United were the better side and fully deserved Sunday's Community Shield victory.

    "I think we easily had the better chances over 90 minutes," he told MUTV. "We defended quite well and overall I'm pleased with our performance. It's always a tight game against Chelsea and there wasn't a lot in it."

    Indeed, the game went to a penalty shootout after scores were tied at 1-1 after 90 minutes. It was Giggs who put the Reds in front on 35 minutes with a well-taken strike from 12 yards. Incredibly, it was the first goal the Welshman has scored at Wembley since he netted for England Schoolboys as a 14-year-old.

    "I had a chance a little before I scored, which I should have tucked away," Giggs said.

    "I tried not to make the same mistake with the next chance I got. There was some great play down the left, then Patrice Evra pulled it back and I just tried to get some height on the shot in order to get it over any defenders who may have been sliding in. It was great to see it go in."

    Back in May, Giggs was a dejected onlooker as Chelsea climbed the steps to Wembley's Royal Box to receive the FA Cup. On Sunday, however, the 33-year-old was all smiles as United lifted a record 12th Community Shield.

    "It was disappointing a couple of months ago, so it was obviously nice winning the game and getting the trophy."

    Edwin's final revenge

    Edwin van der Sar admitted the Reds' Community Shield success went some way to atoning for last season's FA Cup final disappointment.

    The Dutch stopper was United's match-winner, saving penalty kicks from Claudio Pizarro, Frank Lampard and Shaun Wright-Philips.

    "It's a great feeling," van der Sar told Sky Sports amid the Reds' celebrations.

    "It's a little revenge for the cup final and also gives us a boost before the start of the league. I've never saved three penalties in a row."

    Despite his heroics at Wembley, Van der Sar admits his record in shootouts is not the best.

    "I was 5-2 down on penalty shootouts during my career, so this makes it 5-3," the 36-year-old said.

    "I think we deserved the win – we played the better football and created more chances than them. Chelsea only had the one chance at the end of the first half."
