So as a part of Manchester United's pre-season romp through America, they made a stop in Chicago to face the Fire before they play the MLS XI in NYC for the All-Star game. After beating New England Revolutions 4-1, then 7-0 on the Sounders in Seattle, they probably were not expecting anything out of the windy city.
In the 13th minute defender Cory Gibbs, who is no stranger to the EPL style of play being with Charlton Athletic from 2006-08, headed home a long ball to put the pressure on Man. U. early. Unfortunately, United was able to put together 3 goals and the Fire had missed opportunities in front of the goal. So in short, let's put Gibbs on the list of players in 2011 that have been able to bury a chance against the EPL champions.
