Manchester United starting line-up and four goalscorers in 4-1 win vs Wrexham
On Wednesday, Manchester United won 4-1 in a friendly against National League side Wrexham AFC.
Erik ten Hag gave Christian Eriksen and Lisandro Martinez starts in Manchester United’s 4-1 friendly triumph over Wrexham on Wednesday.
United played the National League side in a friendly behind closed doors as the two teams worked to improve their fitness levels ahead of their respective new seasons.
Wrexham had expected to face a team of United kids, but Ten Hag told them he wanted to use the occasion to offer minutes to older players who were missing match sharpness.
Matej Kovar, a youthful goalkeeper, played behind a back four that included summer addition Martinez, World Cup champion Raphael Varane, and Brazil international Alex Telles. Ethan Laird also began.
Another summer signing Eriksen scored a free-kick in his first unofficial appearance for the club, and youngster James Garner played the entire game, with Zidane Iqbal also seeing extensive action.
Wrexham defender Aaron Hayden scored for the visitors at halftime, who brought two sides to the game and made wholesale changes at the break.
United scored three goals without reply in the second half, with Telles, Garnacho, and substitute Amad scoring.
Garnacho, an Argentine youth, started as part of a front three alongside fellow academy products Hannibal Mejbri and Tahith Chong under new manager Ten Hag.
