Manchester United beat AC Milan 5-4 on penalties in the International Champions Cup after a 2-2 draw in Wales.

Manchester United needed to win by three goals to win the International Champions Cup, but needed to do so without Romelu Lukaku and Paul Pogba.

Pogba was missing with what was claimed to be a back spasm, while Lukaku seems set to joinJuventus. Also missing was Harry Maguire, yet to complete his move.

United went ahead after an excellent solo goal from Marcus Rashford, but AC Milan grew into the game despite their relative lack of fitness. That told when Suso scored with a superb shot from distance.

In the second half, Suso’s cross for Samu Castillejo allowed Milan to take the lead on the hour mark when the forward glanced home, helped by a Victor Lindelof deflection.

Jesse Lingard levelled for United with a finish from a tight angle, and with the score at 2-2 the game moved to penalties.

Daniel Maldini, AC Milan legend Paolo’s son, was the first to miss with the ninth penalty of the game, before Daniel James smashed home the winner.
