United will play against a Europe XI to commemorate the 50th anniversaries of the club's European Cup debut and the signing of the Treaty of Rome.

The charity game, scheduled for March 13 next year, will be played at Old Trafford and will see a United XI take on a team of stars coached by Italy's World Cup-winning boss Marcello Lippi.

"I accepted the invitation immediately," Lippi said at a press conference after the Manchester derby. "I'm delighted by the prospect of such a game and I am already looking forward to taking on my great friend Sir Alex Ferguson."
