"I'm excited, I think the majority of players would say the U.S. tour is their favorite," said Evans, who participated in the tour in 2011 playing Barcelona at FedEx Field. "The facilities are amazing and it helps everyone get ready for the season."
"I think it's given everyone a big lift," said defender Jonny Evans of Van Gaal's appointment. "Watching the way the Netherlands performed has given everyone a lot of hope. They were good defensively and very well organized."
