Manchester United team were defeated 3-1 by Wrexham at the Snapdragon Stadium in San Diego today, thereby bringing an end to the Red Devils’ undefeated preseason run.

United’s side comprised mainly of academy prospects, with a meeting with Real Madrid in Houston to come for Erik ten Hag’s more expreienced players in less than 24 hours.

While United’s young lineup was unable to take control against the Welshmen, left back Álvaro Fernández proved to be one of United’s stronger performers on the night.

If the three goals that United conceded are to be overlooked, the 20 year old produced a decent defensive performance, leading both teams with four interceptions and getting dribbled past on only one occasion.

The Reds found themselves two goals down in the first half but a strike from Marc Jurado on the stroke of half-time cut the Welsh side’s lead in half.

Reds goalkeeper Nathan Bishop was the pantomine villain of the first half after fouling Wrexham talisman Paul Mullin, forcing him off with an oxygen mask. Bishop was routinely booed by Wrexham’s fans and a short while later was partially to blame for the opponents’ opening goal of the game.

United ended the game with 10 men after their captain on the night, Dan Gore, was harshly shown a straight red just two minutes into the second half, and they could not find an equaliser after Jurado’s strike, with Wrexham’s two-goal lead restored later on in the second half.

Man United: Bishop, Evans, Fernandez, Gore, Hannibal, Shoretire, Fish, Hugill, Jurado, Hansen-Aarden, Collyer

Wrexham: Foster, Hayden, Tozer, Cleworth, Forde, O’Connor, McAlinden, Lee, McFadzean, Palmer, Mullin.
