Man Utd win Community Shield on penalties

Published 05/08/2007

Manchester United have won the Community Shield at Wembley beating Chelsea 3-0 on penalties.

The game had finished 1-1 in normal time with Florent Malouda levelling for Chelsea after Ryan Giggs had given United a 35th minute lead.

United keeper Edwin Van der Sar pulled off superb penalty saves to deny Claudio Pizarro, Frank Lampard and Shaun Wright-Phillips and earn United revenge for their FA Cup final defeat last May.
