Reds confirm tour squad

Sir Alex Ferguson selected a United squad blending youth and experience for United's 10-day tour of South Africa.

The old heads of Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer are joined by teenage Academy graduates Danny Simpson and Jonny Evans, while Ben Foster is set to make his first United appearance almost a year after joining from Stoke City.

Foster spent last season at Watford, and is joined by five other returning loanees - Simpson, Liam Miller, Chris Eagles, Phil Bardsley and David Jones - all looking to make their mark in the absence of first-team regulars.

Chinese striker Dong Fangzhuo - guesting from Royal Antwerp - also makes his second pre-season tour appearance, having played and scored in last summer's Asia tour.

Sir Alex Ferguson's side have one full day to prepare for their Saturday clash with Orlando Pirates before departing for Cape Town, where they will face Kaizer Chiefs next Tuesday.

Both South African sides will playoff on Thursday July 20 for the right to face United again, in Johannesburg on July 22, before the Reds fly home.

Travelling Squad: Ben Foster; Luke Steele; Phil Bardsley; Danny Simpson; John O’Shea; Wes Brown; Jonathan Evans; Patrice Evra; David Jones; Darren Fletcher; Kieran Richardson; Chris Eagles; Liam Miller; Paul Scholes; Ryan Giggs; Giuseppe Rossi; Ole Solskjaer; Fangzhuo Dong.
