Club America vs Manchester United - Competition: International Champions Cup
Club America managed a second-place finish in the Mexican Clausura last season and have lost their International Champions Cup opener against LA Galaxy (1-2) but then beat San Jose Earthquakes (2-1). However, with a number of pre-season matches already under their belt, Las Aguilas will step onto the pitch both fitter and better prepared than their illustrious opponents.
Dario Benedetto left the 'Quakes game with his left foot in a protective boot so is presumably a doubt for this one. Quintero is set to retain his starting berth up-front as well as Andrade (who scored a screamer last time out) in midfield.
Manchester United are the current holders of the pre-season tournament, beating Roma, Internazionale, Real Madrid and Liverpool on route to the title. While Robin van Persie may have departed, the Red Devils enjoyed arguably the best preparation for the new season in the transfer market of any Premier League side.
Man United's starting XI is tough to predict, given Van Gaal is likely to include some youngsters in the side. It will be good to see the likes of Andreas Pereira, Sean Goss, Paddy McNair and James Wilson being given a chance ahead of the coming season. Michael Carrick is over his late-season ankle injury while Victor Valdes has been excluded from the squad. Anyway, all eyes will be on new signings - Depay, Darmian, Schweinsteiger and Schneiderlin.
