New Manchester United manager David Moyes put a testing pre-season behind him as his side beat Wigan Athletic 2-0 in the Community Shield at a sun-soaked Wembley on Sunday.

The successor to the legendary Alex Ferguson had to endure transfer market frustration and speculation surrounding the future of Rooney during a disappointing run of two wins in seven friendly games. However, Robin van Persie scored a goal in each half to give Moyes his first piece of silverware at the helm of the English giants.
