It appeared an upset was on the cards as took on Ajax Cape Town yesterday lunch time.

In a match that saw make his ‘proper’ debut, the South African side took the lead late on when Alcardo¬†Van Graan audaciously lifted a backheel over the stranded from an 86th minute corner.

Having been on the pitch for a minute or so Van Graan was ready to enter into Ajax Captain folk lore but like the major motion picture release of the weekend, a dark knight rose to restore order.

Whilst nowhere near as impressive as Batman, returned yesterday for and found the back of the net at the game’s death.

Still somewhat of a mystery to United fans, a season long loan to Besiktas fell on it’s face when ruptured cruciate ligaments in his knee, but upon his return it was he that restored parity against a competitive Ajax CT.

Good work down the flank from Vermijl saw with enough time and space at the back post to sweep home.

United will be disappointed having squandered a number of chances with still looking for sharpness and Kagawa heading wide from close range.

There was a full 90 minutes from at left back and the youngster showed no fear in imposing himself, strong in the tackle when the situation called for it. There was also a first appearance from and he showed good feet as well as seeing a late shot saved by Sean Roberts.
