CARDIFF – Manchester United beat AC Milan 5-4 on penalties after their International Champions Cup match in Cardiff's Millennium Stadium ended 2-2 in regulation time on Saturday.
United opened the scoring in their final pre-season match through Marcus Rashford, who took advantage of Milan's high backline to make a run into space to collect Nemanja Matic's long ball.
The 21-year-old cut back into the box and dribbled past two defenders before firing a right-footed shot past goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma into the bottom corner, with the help of a deflection off Milan captain Alessio Romagnoli's heel.
However, their lead lasted only 12 minutes when Milan's high press allowed the Italian side to win the ball back in the final third when United tried to play out from the back.
Matic lost possession a few yards outside his own box and the ball eventually fell to midfielder Suso, who took a shot from range to beat a diving David de Gea and make it 1-1.
