In the second fixture of the USA tour, United were involved in a thrilling five goal encounter against the Serie A side, AS Roma.
It was a five goal thriller that saw United just edge.
Played at the Mile High Stadium, so named because of its height above sea level, United had to wait until the 36th minute before they took the lead through a splendid goal from Wayne Rooney. Picking the ball up some 25 yards from goal, Rooney took two touches before unleashing a curling shot that fund the top corner of the net.
United were to double the lead before half time when, in the 39th minute, Rooney played a defence splitting 50-yard ball for Juan Mata to finish exquisitely.
Still, with United on top, there was time for another gaol before the half-time break, it came after Danny Welbeck had played a good one-two with Ander Herrera only for Welbeck to be up-ended by Mattia Destro. From the resulting penalty kick, Wayne Rooney scored his second goal of the game.
Louis van Gaal made ten changes at half time but the score was to stay at 3-0 until the 75 minute mark when Miralem Pjanic caught Ben Amos off of his line fire home from all of 70 yards out.
Two minutes from time the arrears were further reduced when Michael Keane was adjudged to have handled in the area and up stepped Francesco Totti to score from the penalty spot.
Next up for United is a game against Inter Milan, in Washington, in the early hours of Wednesday morning
