Manchester United Pair Michael Owen And Wayne Rooney Set To Feature For First Time This Pre-Season

Manchester United striking pair Wayne Rooney and Michael Owen are expected to get their first taste of pre-season action in tonight's friendly against the Irish League XI.

The duo travelled this morning as the club prepare to play in the unveiling of the new Aviva Stadium in Dublin. For Rooney, it will be his first match since enduring a disappointing World Cup 2010 campaign.

The story is too old to be commented.
