Manchester United Lose in Community Shield

The Community Shield whet the appetite for the new season, with some wholehearted tackling going on.

It started with a minute`s silence for Sir Bobby Robson, and ended in a penalty shoot-out which Chelsea won.

And when it came to that shoot-out Chelsea were the better side. Patrice Evra`s effort was woeful.

Nani played well for the first ten minutes, scoring United`s first goal. But, he`s no replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo.

Wayne Rooney, whose slickly-taken equaliser right on the final whistle cancelled out strikes by Carvalho and Frank Lampard, was back and threatened the Chelsea goal more than once.
