Sir Alex Ferguson admitted poor first-half defending cost Manchester United dear in their 3-2 firendly defeat to Inter Milan.

Wayne Rooney put United in front but Inter struck three times late in the opening period and although Adriano´s own goal gave the Red Devils hope, they could not stave off a defeat which left Ferguson in no doubt where his side need to improve.

"The defending in the first-half was very poor," he admitted. "You will not win any games, no matter who you are playing against, if you defend like that. We were so open in the first-half."
