Man Utd's 'Wall' returns - no goals scored

Vidic made a comeback after being out for eight months through injury

Manchester United received a tremendous boost before the start of the season as their captain Nemanja Vidic returned to feature prominently in the goalless draw against Norwegian side Valerenga.

The Serbian centre-back made a determined comeback playing for an hour after being eight months out with a knee injury.

United boss Sir Alex Ferguson was away on transfer business as he closes in on £30million-rated Brazil star Lucas Moura but must have been pleased to hear of Vidic's performance.

Vidic said: “It went well, it was a good test. The knee felt good and hopefully over the next few games I’ll get better and better.”
England’s Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck made their first appearance of the season but drew a blank against the Norwegians.
