21 July 2011 12:08

Manchester United and Everton recorded contrasting results as their pre-season tours of the US continued on Wednesday.

United were rampant in their 7-0 defeat of MLS outfit Seattle Sounders at CenturyLink field, with substitute Wayne Rooney the hero after netting a second-half hat-trick.

Michael Owen scored the only goal of the first half with a header, but United’s superiority showed as the match wore on with Rooney's three goals complemented by strikes from Ji-Sung Park, Mame Biram Diouf and Gabriel Obertan.

The result followed United’s 4-1 rout of another MLS outfit, New England Revolution, a week earlier.

United’s English Premier League contemporaries Everton began their US tour with a loss after going down 1-0 against the Philadelphia Union.

David Moyes' side were on top for a majority of the 90 minutes but could not break the deadlock, and were made to pay when Union teenager Christian Hernandez stole a winner in the 87th minute.

Elsewhere, Stoke City thrashed Newcastle Town 6-0, Queens Park Rangers beat Plymouth Argyle 1-0 thanks to a late goal from Heidar Helguson, while Sunderland was beaten 3-1 by Bundesliga outfit Hannover.

From the Championship, Fred Sears scored as West Ham beat FC Copenhagen 1-0, Leicester drew 0-0 with Turkish side Bursaspor and Cardiff City were beaten 1-0 at home by Scottish powerhouse Celtic.

Jardel scored with two minutes remaining as Portuguese outfit Benfica snatched a last minute 1-0 victory against Ligue 1 side Toulouse, while Serie A sides Inter Milan, Lazio and Udinese all recorded victories.
