Match Highlights

Pre-season classics: Vancouver Whitecaps 1-2 City

Rewind to the summer of 2011 and watch the very best of the action from Manchester City’s pre-season friendly against Vancouver Whitecaps.

Roberto Mancini’s men came from behind to secure a 2-1 win in British Colombia thanks to John Guidetti’s header and an outstanding Shaun Wright-Phillips effort.

City had travelled to Canada and the United States ahead of what would turn out to be an unforgettable title-winning season, which began with a 100% record in our warm-up games.

Having beat Mexican outfit, America, 1-0 in our opening match, the tourists fell behind against the Whitecaps as Camilo Savezzo’s 18-yard effort deflected off Stefan Savic to wrong foot Joe Hart.

Guidetti’s far post header from a corner restored parity, before Wright-Phillips arrowed a sensational 25-yard strike into the top corner to wrap up the victory.
