Five facts about Manchester United tour sensation Reece James

Reece James scored twice as a substitute as Manchester United thrashed LA Galaxy 7-0.

While there was a lot of fuss this week about a certain player who wears James on the back of his shirt, who had signed for Real Madrid, Manchester United have one of their own.

Reece James grabbed two goals as the Red Devils beat LA Galaxy 7-0 in Louis van Gaal's first game in charge, to make the perfect first impression.

Here are five facts about the youngster...

1) James, 20, is a left-back who was a regular for the under-21s last season, captaining them in the final against Chelsea.

2) He was nominated for United's 2014 Reserve Player of the Year Award.

3) James says he models his game on Jordi Alba and Patrice Evra.

4) His brother is Matty James, a former England youth captain and United trainee who now plays for Leicester City.

5) He spent time on loan at Carlisle United last season in League One, but injury prevented him from playing regularly.
