Rooney scores twice, Man U beats AS Roma 3-2

By  | 

DENVER (AP) - Wayne Rooney scored twice and set up Juan Mata's goal - all in the first half - in Manchester United's 3-2 victory over AS Roma on Saturday in the International Champions Cup.

Manchester United was coming off a 7-0 exhibition victory over Major League Soccer's Los Angeles Galaxy on Wednesday night at the Rose Bowl and nearly had another shutout in front of 54,117 fans at Sports Authority Field. That was spoiled on Miralem Pjanic's goal in the 75th minute.

Marco Borriello also scored for AS Roma, which carried the play early before Manchester United took control late in the first half behind Mata and Rooney.
