Manchester United were far from convincing in their first pre-season friendly with Juan Mata canceling out Henry Martin’s opening goal as Jose Mourinho’s side begin pre-season tour with a 1-1 draw.

The 12-time Mexican champions Club America looked on course to win after Hector Martin’s header in the 60th minute put them ahead but the Premier League club managed to find the equalizer through Juan Mata in the 78th minute.

Manchester United were however missing all the players who featured in the just ended World Cup as well as Alexis Sanchez and were able to field a number of youthful players from their junior ranks.

Manchester United: Grant (Pereira 46), Valencia (Fosu-Mensah 46), Bailly, Smalling, Shaw (Greenwood 75), Herrera, McTominay (Tuanzebe 86), Pereira, Mata (Gomes 86), Mitchell (Darmian 60), Martial (Chong 60).
