On Sunday Manchester United completed their Asia tour with a flourish 圆满炫耀的结束, beating Hangzhou Greentown 8 - 2 at the Yellow Dragon Stadium.

Wang Hongyou and Otto both relished the honour of scoring against one of the world's best sides, but Hangzhou could do little to stop the tide of goals 连绵不断的进球 from United's stars.

It was an especially great game for United's longest-serving 工龄最长的 player, Ryan Giggs. Coming onto the pitch as a sub 替补队员 30 minutes before the end of the match, Giggs produced his first hat-trick 进了3个球 since playing as a junior.

I think when the lads arrived here, both at the airport and the hotel, the support was just unbelievable. It was great to put on a show for them.

After the match, Giggs thanked his fans in Hangzhou on Manchester United's fan website, MUTV. He said that when the lads 男球员们 arrived the "support was just unbelievable" meaning that it was far greater than they had expected.

He went on, "It was great to put on a show 组织一场好演出 for them. There were some good goals tonight. In fact, we've scored a few goals on this tour; hopefully that can continue in pre-season and into the new season. Scoring goals gives you confidence... it's certainly given me some!"

The man of the match was arguably Dimitar Berbatov, who not only scored a terrific volley 凌空抽射, but had a hand 参与了 in five other goals.

One of these was Giggs' pick of the match. A characteristically cheeky little touch 顽皮的小动作 from Berbatov led to Michael Owen's superb volley into the net. "When Berba's on the ball 掌握了足球, you know when to run," Giggs said.

Some United fans have had their doubts about Owen's recent free transfer to Old Trafford. Not only has the 29-year-old had an unlucky few years with injuries, but he was once a star with United's great rivals, Liverpool FC.

It was great skill from Berba for Michael's second goal. When Berba's on the ball, you know when to run because you know that he's going to give it to you. So that's what MO (Michael Owen) did and it was nice to see it go in.

Moreover, eyebrows were raised 引起众人的惊讶 when Owen was presented with the famous number seven shirt, the legendary 具有传奇性的 top of David Beckham, George Best and Eric Cantona.

But Owen has now scored four goals in as many games. His strong, charismatic 有魄力的 performance in Asia will help to quell平息 worries from some fans about the signing. Ryan Giggs also took the opportunity after the match to praise his new teammate.

"Michael has just proven on this tour what we all knew anyway, that he's a goalscorer. He scores all types of goals - headers 头球, finishes 完成 inside the six-yard box, volleys like tonight's - he's done really well so far."
