Beckham, Henry see chance to shock Man United

NEW YORK, DC, July 27 – French playmaker Theirry Henry and English star midfielder David Beckham see their Major League Soccer All-Star squad in with a chance against Manchester United in their Wednesday match up.

But both European stars admit pulling an upset will be tough.

“Man United is Man United. I think everybody, in a way, expects them to win,” said Henry, the former Arsenal star who tops MLS scoring for the New York Red Bulls.

“We are going to try to cause an upset and see how we can do it. We all know it is going to be a difficult one, but we will try.”

Beckham, in the final season of his contract with the Los Angeles Galaxy, is a former Man United star relishing the chance to face his former club.

“We have a chance on Wednesday. It will be tough,” Beckham said. “It’s never easy coming up against Manchester United, no matter where you play in the world. It’s going to be a difficult game but it’s going to be a game to enjoy.”

The Reds will bring star forwards Wayne Rooney and Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez plus top defenders Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic to face the best talent the American league has to offer.

“You don’t get many opportunities to play against the likes of Wayne Rooney and Chicharito and so many other players that they’ve got,” Beckham said.

“As much as we want to win the game it’s important that we enjoy it.”

Henry expects US fans will enjoy the experience as well.

“They are going to see some of the best players in the world,” Henry said. “It’s going to be a difficult game and we’re going to try to keep the ball, which is not an easy one against them.”
