United Reserves have flown an U19s squad to the US to take part in the Dallas Cup.

It is the first time the Reds will have a side in the U19s section of the tournament, and they are in Super Group 'A' alongside Spanish giants Real Madrid.

David Beckham and Wayne Rooney are among the players to have graced the tournament in their younger years, and Reserves boss Rene Meulensteen expects his players to benefit from the experience.

"It's a high quality tournament, that's why the club wants us to go," Rene told ManUtd.com. "The opening game is against Real Madrid, which will be a great experience for the lads.

"Besides that we will do our best. We need to be sensible with the squad rotation to ensure that everyone gets a good experience, both on and off the pitch."

United will open the tournament against Madrid on Sunday night at Pizza Hut Park Stadium, before facing Mexicans CF Monterrey on Monday and FC Delco Crunch of the US on Wednesday.

The tournament's semi-finals will take place on Friday, May 14 before the grand final on Sunday, April 16.

Meulensteen's hopes his side will return to Manchester refreshed by their trip, and ready for their vital title clash with Aston Villa on April 22.

"I hope it brings them back refreshed," he said. "Then we need to come back and really be focused on the title race. We could do with Villa drawing their game before they face us, then we can win the league at Villa."

Dallas Cup Squad: Ron-Robert Zieler, Lee Crockett, Jonny Evans, Phil Marsh, Gerard Piqué, Kieran Lee, David Gray, Ryan Shawcross, Michael Lea, Danny Rose, Ritchie Jones, Sam Hewson, Jamie Mullan, Darron Gibson, Michael Barnes, Giuseppe Rossi, Fraizer Campbell, Aaron Burns.
We'll win at a canter. :stuckup:

real have had raul bravo through, Raul, Casillas, Soldado, Portillo, Juanfran, Etoo I think! basically they have a pretty hotshit youth team. They just prefer spending money on big name galacticos, they only bring their youth through unless they are galactico quality.

United's Reserves made a winning start to their Dallas Cup campaign with a hard-fought victory over Real Madrid.

A record DC attendance of 17,105 filled the Pizza Hut Park Stadium as Fraizer Campbell's brace and a penalty from Giuseppe Rossi gave the Reds the spoils.

United started slowly in the first of their three group matches, and fell behind to Juanmi Callejon's far-post strike after just seven minutes.

Rene Meulensteen's side drew level just 10 minutes later, however, and it was through in-form striker Campbell, fresh from his four-goal haul against Manchester City.

The increasingly lively partnership of Campbell and Rossi tore the Spaniards to shreds, with Rossi laying the equaliser on a plate for his cohort.

After a patchy first-half, United moved ahead six minutes into the second period through Campbell's second of the evening.

Captain Darron Gibson struck a trademark long-range volley towards goal, and Campbell managed to divert the ball's course into the back of the net.

The pacy striker was denied his hat-trick when he was upended by Madrid keeper Enrique Reguero, but Rossi duly converted the penalty to seal United's win.

Alberto Bueno's fine strike halved the arrears, but United were never unduly troubled and held on to take all three points.

Meulensteen's side are back in action again on Monday against Mexican side Monterrey.
