Manchester United continued their impressive form in the Premier section of the Milk Cup by beating Co Armagh 3-0 at the Riada Stadium in Ballymoney.

Jordan Andrew Thompson, Demetri Mitchell and Marcus Rashford were on target to maintain their 100% record.

Co Londonderry earned a 1-0 win over Newcastle United in the same category.

In the Junior section, Rangers made it two wins out of two by beating Liverpool 2-0 at Ballymena Showgrounds, Sam Jamieson finding the net twice.

Jamieson struck from close range in the 16th minute and added a second by firing high into the roof of the net on the half hour.

Other teams who have won both matches in the Premier include Ichifuna FC, Vendee, Brentford, CSKA Moscow and Cherry Orchard.

Sides with two wins in the Junior after two rounds of fixtures are Plymouth Argyle, Southampton, Rangers, O'Higgins FC and Co Antrim.
