Berbatov gives United victory in Seoul

Dimitar Berbatov scored a 65 minute header to give Manchester United a 3-2 win over FC Seoul in the South Korean capital earlier this morning. The home side had taken the lead after Dejan Damjanovic evaded United's defence before shooting past Tomasz Kuszczak.

Wayne Rooney put the Premier League champions back on level terms eight minutes later when he stole in unmarked to convert a John O'Shea cross from the right but Damjanovic got his second goal of the game to put FC Seoul back in front.

Italian teenager Federico Macheda equalized for United on 57 minutes when he collected a through ball from Rooney before expertly slotting the ball past the onrushing Kim in the Seoul goal. Berbatov spared the English side's blushes when he converted a Darron Gibson cross to give United a 3-2 win.

However, the real star of the hour was Korean midfielder Park Ji-Sung who whose name was chanted by home fans throughout the game despite not making an appearance off the bench until the 73rd minute.
