Manchester United points of interest

Victor Lindelöf played well in Sweden’s crushing loss to Germany, and he’ll be hoping to continue that good form in a potential upset against Mexico. It’ll be no easy task, as Mexico have been one of the most exciting attacking teams in the tournament so far, and United old boy Chicharito is now getting amongst the goals himself.

Two United midfielders will be on opposite sides and will both be hoping to qualify when Serbia take on Brazil. Fred is unlikely to get off the bench for Brazil based on the evidence so far, but Nemanja Matić will be right in the midst of the action from the start. This match will also offer another chance to take a look at rumored transfer target Sergey Milinković-Savić. Can’t wait to have to type that out every week in match reports.
