The fear of not qualifying for the FA Cup appeared to have shaken Van Gaal. He put on an expensive team against a cheap Cambridge United.
Mata scored the first goal for the Reds in the 25th minute. Rojo then followed this brillaint lead by doubling the scoreline in the 32nd! Not a bad start at all.
In the second half Cambridge played with purpose, however it was Manchester United that made another breakthrough. Wilson scored the final goal of the match in the 73rd minute to secure his team’s entrance into the next round!
Man United have edged even closer to the chance of winning a cup this year. However, if they had to play a £231m squad to win a £0 Cambridge how will they cope against the bigger and stronger teams?
