Manchester United kicked off its American tour by winning big against an American club.

Federico Macheda scored two goals as Manchester United opened the 2011 World Football Challenge with a 4-1 victory over the New England Revolution on Wednesday night in front of a crowd of 51,523 in Foxborough, Masachusetts. Michael Owen and  Park Ji-Sung also scored for the Red Devils, which started just four players from the side that faced Barcelona in the most rcent Champions League final.

Wayne Rooney and Ashley Young played in the game, with Young's appearance marking his debut with United since transferring over from Aston Villa last month.

The Revolution's lone goal came from Kenny Mansally.
