Manchester United celebrated reaching 60 million fans on Facebook by getting Wayne Rooney and Andreas Pereira to take on Adnan Januzaj on Juan Mata in the 60-yard goal shot challenge.
The idea of the game was simple: strike the ball from the halfway line into the unguarded goal. However, that proved easier said than done for the Manchester United quartet, who all struggled with the opening round of shots.
Embarrassing first round
All four players surprisingly missed with their first shots - perhaps it was a bit windy at the Aon Training Complex - but they were more accurate with their second round of shots.
Rooney, who has scored a few spectacular long-range efforts during his Manchester United career, scored first to put the Red Team 1-0 up, while Mata failed to level the scores after missing with his next shot.

Pereira wins it for the Red Team
Pereira, 18, then put the Red Team 2-0 up with the best shot of the entire challenge. The Brazilian midfielder's right-footed strike sailed beautifully into the back of the net.
This meant Rooney and Pereira had already won the challenge, but Januzaj restored some pride for the White Team with a sweetly-struck left-footed effort.
Some of the United fans left comments on the club's official Facebook page, bemused at why the club's stars were not more accurate from the half-way line.
Fans bemused by efforts
"Is this a p*** take??" asked one user. "Open goal, no keeper and defenders and they're still struggling?". While another wrote: "All those wages and they cant kick a ball straight... c'mon lads!"
Perhaps the United quartet had just been put through a particularly tough training session by United boss Louis van Gaal, who takes his side to the Hawthorns to face West Brom this evening.
United are currently sixth in the Premier League table, having won three of their opening seven matches, but have the opportunity to leapfrog Liverpool and West Ham by securing all three points tonight.
