Manchester United VS Al-hilal 2-3 Exhibition Game

Al-Hilal came from 2-1 down to capture a win over a strong Red Devils side at the packed King Fahd Stadium. The first goal was from Yasser Al-Qahtani who put the ball in at close range after a deflection from Rio Ferdinand. Manchester United struck back six minutes later with Carlos Tevez's goal and then got the lead from a header by Cristiano Ronaldo. Al-Hilal sent in an equalizer just before the interval when Al-Jaber netted a very dubious penalty from an alleged foul by Ferdinand. It was Bader Al-Kharashi's goal that captured the win for the Saudis from a wonderful overhead kick past substitute keeper Tom Heaton. Videos of all the goals can be viewed below.

Yasser Al-Qahtani (1-0)
