Manchester United were able to secure victory in their first game of the pre-season tour. The scoreline against Perth Glory was 2-0 with Marcus Rashford and James Garner finding themselves on the score-sheet.

The game was a promising affair with the team performing better in the second-half where the attacking intent was more pronounced and the experience of Mata and Pogba showed.

However, in the opening-half United were still incredible up-front and the performance of one man, in particular, has got fans talking.

Daniel James was handed his pre-season debut and the Welshman proved his hype to be accurate. With electric pace up-front, the Red Devils were awarded a much more fluid forward-play when compared to last season.

James was also voted as the Man of the Match and it seems like he is bound to be a fan-favorite at Old Trafford.

Many more games await the Red Devils in their tour and it will give these supporters ample opportunity to catch more glimpses of James.

At 21 years of age, he brings much hope to a side that has lacked attacking intent in the past years.

In the forty-five minutes he was on the pitch, James alone could have created numerous goals if his deft passes had fallen to the right feet. It will be intriguing to see how he is able to take on the experienced backlines in the Premier League.
