The money raised by selling the tickets went to charities which are supported by Manchester United. Me, my brother and my Dad went with Joe and his family and we had a brilliant day. This is what happened.

We got a tram from Manchester to Old Trafford and we went to the Tollgate pub and had a drink in the sun and we got a burger as we walked down to the ground. When we got there we saw some Brazilian dancing and we then went into the stadium and we watched the game. The atmosphere inside the stadium was loud because everyone was cheering and shouting for their team and everyone was excited and happy. Also, the weather was mild and dry. All the players were brilliant and I didn't have a particular favourite. It was tense because the score was so close and we really needed to get on the attack and score another goal but it didn't turn out like that. In the end a draw was just enough.
