VIDEO: Angelo Henriquez scores first Manchester United goal

Chilean international Angelo Henriquez scored his first Manchester United goal in their latest friendly.

Manchester United drew 1-1 on their trip to Sweden to play AIK Fotball, a match which was a welcome distraction from the Wayne Rooney saga.

The Englishman had still overshadowed the match, pulling out ahead of the trip with a shoulder injury, but there were plenty of positives for United to take from the game despite failing to win.

Nemanja Vidic and Nani both made their returns to action, and Angelo Henriquez was handed a chance off the bench,

The Chilean has had few opportunities since signing last summer, and has been late joining up on pre-season due to his involvement at the under-20 World Cup, where he impressed.

He scored his first United goal in the match - courtesy of a cross from new boy Wilfried Zaha, catapulting himself into David Moyes' thinking ahead of the Community Shield game at the weekend.
