Man City Squeak By Vancouver Whitecaps 2-1

For the second time on their U.S. tour, Shaun Wright-Phillips gave boss Roberto Mancini a reminder of his talents with a terrific 25-yard goal against the Vancouver Whitecaps.

Man City has to come from behind to beat the worst team in MLS, a performance that will make City wonder how they will cope without their talisman Carlos Tevez next season.

This game had been in serious doubt and was only passed fit to play three hours before kick-off, but after no rain fell overnight and ten hours of warm sunshine, the pitch was deemed playable.
