Boca Juniors top Reds at Old Trafford

England (AP) Boca Juniors conceded an early penalty and then hit back to beat Japan's Urawa Red Diamonds 5-2 in a friendly game at Old Trafford on Tuesday.

Martin Palermo, Fabian Vargas, Franco Cangele, Diego Cagna and Matias Silvestre all hit the target at the home of Manchester United.

Emerson scored from the penalty spot for Urawa and Takuya Yokoyama headed a deserved second for the Diamonds four minutes from the end.

The Old Trafford fans later saw host Manchester United beat PSV Eindhoven 1-0 on a first-half header by Mikael Silvestre.
