Wilson nets debut double as United beat Hull

A night to remember: James Wilson (left) scored twice on his debut for the Red Devils

Manchester United’s past and future were on show as debutant James Wilson scored twice in a 3-1 win over Hull City on Tuesday that marked the end of stalwart Nemanja Vidic’s Old Trafford career and set tongues wagging about Ryan Giggs.

Wilson, 19 years old and one of two debutants on show, scored in each half before Matty Fryatt pulled one back for Hull and Robin van Persie added a third for United in their final home game of a turbulent season.

Wilson stole the headlines, but the night belonged to those at the other ends of their careers.

Vidic, who is leaving for Inter Milan at the end of the campaign, played his final home match and Giggs, currently the interim manager, swapped his club suit for a tracksuit and made a substitute appearance that many speculate could be his last.

United stay seventh in the table with 63 points, three behind sixth-place Tottenham Hotspur. Hull, who take on Arsenal in the FA Cup final on May 17, stay 15th.
