Manchester United winger Angel di Maria is currently in China. The 26-year-old star will play for Argentina against arch-rivals Brazil in the 2014 Superclasico de las Americas on Saturday.

The match will be played at the Beijing National Stadium in Beijing and promises to be hugely exciting. It will be a grand occasion and the following is the award on offer – the trophy for which Di Maria flew from Manchester to Beijing, covering a distance of over 5000 miles.

Di Maria is likely to start for Argentina against Brazil and will be a key player for his country. The former Real Madrid star has been in brilliant form in the Premier League so far this season, having scored three goals and provided as many assists in five appearances.

Di Maria has also created 16 chances for his United teammates and has a laudable pass accuracy of 81%. Although his shot accuracy is a disappointing 40%, the former Benfica star is a world-class attacker who will be determined to get the better of Brazil on Saturday.
