Manchester United points of interest

In the day’s first game we’ll be able to see United’s first summer signing Fred warming the bench. He picked up an injury shortly before the World Cup kicked off, and hasn’t yet made an appearance in Russia. Erstwhile United striker Javier Hernández should start up top for El Tri.

Both Romelu Lukaku and Marouane Fellani made the Belgium squad, though only the firmer should be involved from the get-go against Japan. David Moyes’ teacher’s pet Adnan Januzaj scored a belter as Belgium beat England in the group stages, though is expected to be benched for this one. Former United playmaker Shinji Kagawa should start for Japan.

This will be our live thread for the day, so stick around and chat with us.
