Manchester United have lifted the first silverware of the English football season, beating the defending Premier League champions Chelsea 3-1 at Wembley to win the Community Shield.

85,000 fans were on hand to watch the opening of the season with World Cup villain Wayne Rooney playing a superb low pass to set up Antonio Valencia for the Red's opening goal.

The United veteran Ryan Giggs says he's delighted they put in an entertaining first-up performance.
