There was inevitably going to be a match at the World Cup where two United players would come up against each other. Mexico and France was that game. At a point when it seemed as though both teams were devoid of the cutting edge, up popped Javier Hernandez, from the bench, to break the deadlock. Pat wouldn't have been pleased with that but all who support United must have jumped at the sight of Chicharito creating for himself an open goal.
Park didn't fare well today against the Argies so it was a case of reversed roles for the two United players after the opening round of games.
As far as the odd game of the day went, I thought Nigeria pressed the self-destruct button in their 2-1 defeat against Greece that I think will prove very costly in the end.
In fact, I think South Africa, Nigeria, and France might as well start packing their bags.
In England meanwhile, the 2010/11 EPL fixtures were released today. United kick off the season against new boys Newcastle United at home and end the season at home to Blackpool.
It's a rather tough looking program at the start of the season with games against Everton and the traditionally difficult trip to Craven Cottage. We've got back to back games against Arsenal and Chelsea in December and during the title run in.
Ultimately, the true test of the games will be revealed when the Champions League fixtures and opposition are announced as well.
That ought to be just about it today; Cheers!
