Nemanja Vidic played for an hour as a second-string Manchester United side won 2-0 at Crewe.

The Serbian defender missed United's tour of Australia and the Far East with a back complaint but came through 62 minutes untroubled at Gresty Road.

There were also run-outs for Nani and Antonio Valencia who both missed the trip, with Nani scoring both goals.

The Portugal international, who has been suffering with a broken nose, slotted in a first-half free-kick and then tucked away a second goal after the break.
