That's it from us tonight - Thanks for joining us and do check back for other pre-season friendlies, including the Community Shield on the weekend.
...
Wayne Rooney addresses the Old Trafford crowd and thanks the crowd for their charitable donations, the Everton fans and the club and the United fans for 12 years of support and promises them more trophies.

The applause is understandably, loud.
...
FT: Manchester United 0-0 Everton. The Wayne Rooney Foundation is the only winner tonight, as his testimonial hopefully raises a sizeable amount of money. Jose Mourinho and Ronald Koeman managed to give their players a fantastic runout without any significant injuries - exactly the point of a pre-season game.
...
90+2' Memphis with a teasing inswinging cross, which Joel plucks out of the air.
...
90' 2 minutes of injury time
...
90' Memphis attempts an overhead kick and just ... falls down. Wayne Rooney and Kai Rooney are unable to hide their smiles.
...
88' Wow. Seamus Coleman with something that even does not deserve to be called a cross-shot. Row Z gleefully accepts his gift.
...
85' Hang on! Rashford and Mata nearly fashion a good chance, but Everton get plenty of bodies back to clear.
...
83' This looks like it is destined to be goalless - you can go to sleep.
...
80' CHANCE! Mirallas with a great delivery finds Funes Mori, whose header flashes narrowly over - Old Trafford's gasp of relief is audible.
...
80' Everton have a free kick on the right wing. Rojo with a foolish kick out.
...
77' Mo Besic goes off for Everton - injured. Koeman looks mildly perturbed.
...
76' WE HAVE A SHOT! The ball falls to Mata on the edge of the box, and his shot is cleared for a corner - Fellaini with a header from the subsequent corner does not trouble Robles.
...
75' Oviedo with a rather agricultural tackle on Henrikh Mkhitaryan. Welcome to the Premier League.
...
72' Coleman doesn't hang back as he charges into a 50-50 with Fellaini - the pair kiss and make up though... which is just a metaphor. DO NOT TAKE IT LITERALLY, or do - if you're bored.
...
70' I'm not sure what to report here. There's nothing happening on the pitch - United and Everton look bored as they pass the ball around.
...
66' Great defending! Coleman clears an exquisite ball from deep by Mkhitaryan aimed at Depay.
...
65' Cleverley and Gibson are back at Old Trafford, as Everton make what looks like 9 changes.
...
65' Well, that's this game done. Ibrahimovic goes off for DEPAY!!! No wait, it really is him!
...
64' Pep Guardiola would do well to eschew his chase of John Stones for Holgate - the Everton youngster has looked much better.
...
63' This has really evolved into a snoozefest. This is not the Jose Mourinho side I was promised.... Oh wait.
...
59' Well,he tried. Ibrahimovic takes a low swerving shot from range and watches as it goes wide.
...
58' A rather sedate atmosphere in Old Trafford as the game lives up to its testimonial billing. Dear Zlatan, please light this game up...
...
56' Wayne Rooney in deep conversation with his son, Kai Rooney on the United bench. This is rather an adorable sight, and I'm not sure if rival fans can stomach this side of Wayne Rooney.
...
55' Here's some stunning news for you - former Everton manager Roberto Martinez has just been announced as Belgium manager. Romelu Lukaku and Kevin Mirallas might be pleased!
...
53' Wayne Rooney comes off to a standing ovation. Fittingly, Marcus Rashford comes on to replace him.
...
52' WHAT A CHANCE! Coleman's cross from the right falls to Mirallas in the box, and he slams it into the side netting.
...
50' THIS IS A FRIENDLY BOYS! Ashley Young shoves his hand into a quizzical Saemus Coleman's chest - an unseemly sight for a friendly, with referee Michael Oliver calming them down. Moments later, Phil Jones' awkward backpass to De Gea results in a corner.
...
49' There's an entire minute of announcements, as it seems like the Old Trafford announcer is reading a book.
...
47' Ashley Young and Holgate in a great competition down the left, with the United winger eventually fouling the Everton youngster. Meanwhile Joel Robles is also on in place of Martin Stekelenberg.
...
46' PEEP PEEP PEEP! Manchester United get us underway in the second half!
...
A host of changes, as Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Marouane Fellaini, Marcus Rojo, Ashley Young, Daley Blind, Phil Jones are on for Manchester United. Everton get Kevin Mirallas one.
...
Replays of Wayne Rooney's wondergoal for Everton against Arsenal... Will he ever score a goal like that again? Maybe in the second half, which is minutes away...
...
David Moyes speaking about the first time he saw Wayne Rooney - 'amazed' is how he describes it.
...
HT: A promising first half, with Manchester United having had the better of the chances, and we can look forward to a host of changes in the second half.
...
44' HOW DID HE MISS? Coleman sends in a wonderful cross, and Lukaku is relatively free in the box, but glances his header wide. If Chelsea are interested, the Belgian knocked a few million off his price.
...
43' WHAT A CHANCE! Rooney with a peach of a cross from the right wing, as Stones misses his header and the ball drops to Ibrahimovic at the far post, but Stekelenberg makes himself big and collects the Swede's shot.
...
42' Shaw with a wonderful interception, before he charges to the right flank and aims a cross at the far post, but he is unable to find a Red Devils jersey
...
41' CLOSE! Luke Shaw with a low drive from the left that narrowly misses the post by a couple of inches.
...
40' SHOT! Valencia's cross is cleared by Everton but finds Carrick on the edge of the box, and he responds with a piledriver that Everton manage to block as well.
...
37' A great pass from Rooney in midfield sends Martial clear on the left, but Coleman does well to deny him as he bears down on goal.
...
36' Ibrahimovic with a little shimmy past Barry, before firing a shot at goal that goes wide. The Swede has looked very, very good so far.
...
33' ALMOST! Rooney with a delicious ball to Lingard in the box, but Coleman shoulders him out of the way.
...
32' SAVE! Great work from Lukaku as he dribbles into the box, but his blocked shot falls to Barkley in space in the box, with De Gea doing well to palm away his shot
...
31' David Moyes, Sam Allardyce and Sir Alex Ferguson all sit next to each other in the stands in deep conversation. I wonder what they're discussing...
...
29' Almost! Carrick with a wonderful cross-field diagonal ball almost finds Lingard running behind the Evertonian defence, but Funes Mori makes an acrobatic interception and clears.
...
27' Rooney's low delivery to the near post is cleared - Everton look really solid defensively, with Stones and Holgate shining.
...
27' United are gradually going into the game, with Valencia earning another corner..
...
25' They can't. Despite Rooney getting a great reception from the crowd as he takes the set-piece, Everton eventually get the ball away. Moments later Rooney sends Zlatan clear on the edge of the box, and his shot from a narrow angle is palmed away by Stekelenberg
