  2. 90+2

    FT: AIK 1 Manchester United 1. Henriquez cancels out Quasion's stunning opener to ensure United finish their pre-season touring on a positive note. Good workout for the champions.

  3. 90

    Two minutes of added-time...

  4. 89

    CHANCE! Best chance of the night for the birthday boy Robin van Persie. Bebe does well again to pick the hitman out, but his header, from point-blank range, is straight at the keeper.

  5. 87

    Vidic stifles yet another AIK attack, playing the ball out for a corner, which almost causes Amos a problem, but he deals with it well.

  6. 85

    SAVE! Quick free-kick finds Danny Welbeck, whose loose control lets him down, allowing Carlgren to smother well.

  7. 81

    CHANCE! Bebe with a great cross, and Welbeck, Henriquez and Van Persie all have chances to score, but Carlgren blocks well. Real goalmouth scramble.

  8. 79

    Bebe is on! He replaces Zaha and Welbeck comes on for Giggs.

  9. 77

    Van Persie's best chance of the match. From a Ryan Giggs corner, but heads wide when in space.

  10. 74

    Another slick United move involving Ryan Giggs, who plays in Van Persie, but the Dutchman cannot pick out a Red shirt in the box.

  11. 71

    Game has completely changed now. United seem to be in control, but need another goal.

  12. 69

    Henriquez almost scores again, but his backheel doesn't come off. He has been listening to me it seems...

  13. 68

    Van Persie's free-kick hits the wall, Giggs spreads the rebound out to Zaha, who fires low and hard across goal, and Henriquez taps in at the back post.

  14. 68

    GOAL! AIK 1 Manchester United 1. Henriquez 68.

  15. 67

    Free-kick to United as Henriquez is brought down. The Chilean has come into the game well in the second-period.

  16. 64

    PENALTY CLAIM! Giggs flicks the ball through to Henriquez, who tries to round the goalkeeper, goes down, but replays show Carlgren took the ball.

  17. 63

    Danny Welbeck getting ready to come on.

  18. 61

    Giggs starting to find space in the middle. Picking a few passes, and playing much further up the pitch.

  19. 59

    Henriquez has a strike at goal, but it is always flying over the top. Great turn on the edge of the box though.

  20. 58

    Zaha again causing problems, but is finding the Swedes a tough nut to crack. Is persevering very well, however.

  21. 55

    Free-kick to the Swedes. Bahoui fires it towards goal, but it flies just over. Amos was scrambling across, but wasn't getting there.

  22. 53

    Great chance for United to equalise, but Vidic heads into the ground, and over. Evans has to go off. Smalling on.

  23. 51

    United look stunned. Evans receiving treatment on the sideline.

  24. 49

    What a finish. Quasion does really well to turn inside, and curls an unstoppable effort past Amos from 20-yards out. Nothing the young keeper could have done to keep that out!

  25. 49

    GOAL! AIK 1 Manchester United 0. Quasion 15.

  26. 47

    AIK have started very strongly after the break, and show no signs of holding anything back.

  27. 45

    United have made just one change, with Ben Amos replacing Lindegaard in goal.

  28. 45

    We are underway in the Friends Arena for the second period. AIK have made several changes ahead of their weekend league clash with Malmo.

  30. Get your views in during the interval. Have you been impressed with United? Will Nani be missed? Expect many changes in the second-half? Will RvP get his birthday goal?

  31. 45

    HT: AIK 0 Manchester United 0. No stoppage-time added. The loss of Nani has seen the threat of United dwindle a tad, as he was really troubling the Swedes, but both goalkeepers very busy in an entertaining game.

  32. 44

    Pinpoint ball from Carrick with his instep, picks out Zaha again, but he fails to find a Red shirt in the box.

  33. 42

    Henriquez twice gets into good positions, all his own work, but has no support, and is dispossessed.

  34. 40

    Mutumba, who has been a threat all night, unleashes a thunderous effort from the angle, which only just flies over the top.

  35. 37

    Zaha again gets in behind, with time and space, but his low cross is easily cut out. Needs to do better from that position.

  36. 35

    SAVE! Igboananike tries an effort from the angle, but Lindegaard blocks strongly with his chest. Has looked very secure so far.

  37. 33

    Anderson seems to be taking Nani's attacking mantle on, with some probing runs through the heart of the Swede's defence.

  38. 31

    Nani, who has been United's best player, hobbles off. Chilean Angelo Henriquez comes on in his place. Big blow for the Premier League champions.

  39. 29

    Zaha again looking impressive. Dribbling his way past two men, threads a thoughball to Giggs, but Stramatopoulos is out quickly to clear.

  40. 27

    SAVE AGAIN! This time Van Persie really should score, after being picked out by Evra, six-yards out, but finds Stramatopoulos difficult to beat, blocking well.

  41. 25

    SAVE! Tremendous stop by Lindegaard. Mutumba latches onto a long ball, which Rafael fails to cut out, but Lindegaard stands tall and blocks well.

  42. 23

    Midway through the half. Very open game, with some excellent passing. Nani and Anderson certainly look up for it, and really getting involved.

  43. 21

    Move of the match! Wonderful ball over the top from Giggs, which is taken brilliantly in his stride by Nani, who lays plays in Van Persie, but Stramatopoulos is equal to the hitman's shot, low to his left.

  44. 20

    Anderson finds himself in a good position, but elects to thread the ball through to Van Persie, who cannot beat the defender to it.

  45. 17

    Very nearly a birthday goal for Robin van Persie. Rafael lays it off to him, and the Dutchman works space for a shot, and curls a low effort just wide.

  46. 15

    First shot on goal, comes from Mutumba, who cuts inside well, fires low, but Lindegaard is equal to it.

  47. 14

    Some tasty challenges coming in from both sides. United looking very sharp from their busy tour.

  48. 12

    Nani is looking very dangerous here. Got himself into two great positions, but the final ball ultimately disappointed.

  49. 11

    Lots of showboating going on at the moment, from both sides. Zaha trying a few flicks and tricks, looking very confident.

  50. 7

    Bahoui has two great chances for the Swedes within the space of a minute. First, he fired wide from a good position, then Vidic blocks another effort on the edge of the box.

  51. 5

    Great chance for Zaha! Wonderful pass from Nani, reversing it back to Zaha, who slices a left-footed shot wide. Incisive move from United.

  52. 3

    Low cross from Evra causes some serious problems again, but Van Persie cannot connect.

  53. 2

    Long ball over the top almost finds Van Persie, but the ball runs through to Stamatoupols.

  54. Nani starts as well for United. He has been in real dire need of games, and with the season approaching, match fitness is vital.

  55. 1

    And we are underway in Stockholm...

  56. The Swedes are 10 unbeaten. Will be a major test for the Premier League champions.

  57. Eight changes for United, with Vidic's comeback a major boost.

  58. Manchester United XI: Lindegaard, Rafael, Evans, Vidic, Evra, Carrick, Giggs, Zaha, Anderson, Nani, Van Persie

  59. AIK XI: Stamatopoulos, Johnansson, Backman, Milosevic, Kayongo-Mutumba, Borges, Bahoui, Quaison, Ofori, Moro, Igboananike.
