Peter Crouch (DC ’99) scored early for visiting Stoke City, but it was another pair of Dallas Cup Alumni that led Manchester United back from a second half deficit for an important home victory. Wayne Rooney (DC ’99) scored a deft header off a corner kick in the 78th minute to tie the game and Mexican National Chicharito (DC '04) scored the go ahead goal two minutes later.
Adnan Januzaj (DC ’13) changed the pace of the game when he came on in the 58th minute. His dribbles down the right side provided desparate lunges from the Stoke City defense causing several yellow cards.
The home victory was an important one for Man U, who stays in contention with the win after a slow start to the season.
