San Jose Earthquakes Face Manchester United in International Champions Cup

Manchester United will face the San Jose Earthquakes Tuesday night at the new Avaya Stadium in San Jose.

The match up is part of the International Champions Cup.

The game was originally scheduled to be played at Cal Memorial Stadium in Berkeley, but was moved to San Jose to better suit the traveling needs of Manchester United.

Last night, manager Louis Van Gaal and defender Chris Smalling held a press conference for Manchester United.

Van Gaal believes they have a higher level of play but, “San Jose is more fit, they’ve played more games.” He believes the Earthquakes’ height and strength will make for a tough match for Manchester United.

Unfortunately for Manchester United, keeper David De Gea and winger Antonio Valencia will not play in Tuesday’s game due to minor injuries.

Both teams have already played one game each in the International Champions Cup, both against Club America.

The Earthquakes fell 2-1 to America, while Manchester United beat them 1-0. The Earthquakes are currently in last place, while Manchester United is in fourth.

Manchester United is considered one of the biggest soccer teams in the world.
