We continued and preserved our perfect preseason form as we recorded a fifth victory. Midfielder Juan Mata scored a stoppage-time penalty to give us a 1-0 win over Norwegian side Kristiansund and maintain our 100 percent record during preseason.
Mata was brought down by goalkeeper Andreas Vaikla in the the first minute of injury time and converted from the spot himself with almost the last kick of the game.
The game, dominated by Manchester United, had looked to be heading for a draw before Mata’s spot kick. The Spaniard scored from the spot as United added Kristiansund to our list of preseason victories following wins over Perth Glory, Leeds United, Inter Milan and Tottenham.
