Manchester United Defeated 2-1 by Zenit St Petersburg

Pavel Pogrebnyak and Danny

Manchester United's bid for the European Super Cup ended did not materialize as Pavel Pogrebnyak and Danny goals earned Zenit St Petersburg a deserved win. Fresher and more incisive throughout, Zenit took the lead when Pogrebnyak forced home a header from close range. Playmaker Danny made it 2-0 with a fine solo goal on the hour, before Nemanja Vidic pulled one back from six yards. It was too little too late, though, with Paul Scholes sent off late on in a lacklustre showing from United.
