Mason Greenwood was on the scoresheet when Manchester United XI lost 4-3 to Stoke City on Wednesday in a closed-door friendly at Old Trafford.
Greenwood was kept out of the England squad to face Hungary, Andorra and Poland in the coming week, so Ole Gunnar Solskjær wanted to keep him sharp after scoring against Wolves last Sunday.
Greenwood, who also scored in the first two games against Leeds and Southampton, started on the right wing against Stoke and was joined by Edinson Cavani whose call-up to the Uruguay squad was canceled due to Covid’s quarantine concerns.
