New York Cosmos will be the first US team to play at Old Trafford, quite fitting considering along side the one and only Pele, Eric Cantona has had a hand in selecting the team to represent the Cosmos.
The squad is as follows:
The World Selection
Cosmos U-23 Players
This team has clocked up a staggering 2 World Cups, 5 Champions League Trophies, 21 Premier League titles, 4 La Liga titles, 5 Serie A titles and 17 FA Cups between them, as well as reaching close to 1000 international caps.
The match takes place on Friday 5th August and should be a fitting tribute to one of Manchester United’s best ever servants, and a true model professional.
