Storms hit Man Utd friendly
Paul Scholes in action for England
Scholes announced his international retirement earlier this week
Heavy rain caused Manchester United to postpone Thursday's friendly with Urawa Red Diamonds at Old Trafford.

Electrical storms forced the earlier Boca Juniors v PSV Eindhoven match to be abandoned 10 minutes early.

And with more storms forecast, referee Andy D'Urso cancelled felt it was unsafe for the game to start, with Sir Alex Ferguson in agreement.

Paul Scholes was due to captain the United side, while Darren Fletcher was also set for a first pre-season outing.
