Ronaldo attempts to elude the Urawa defense during United's tour opener.

TOKYO, Japan -- Manchester United were held to a 2-2 draw by Japanese J-League champions Urawa Red Diamonds in the opening match of the close season tour of Asia on Tuesday.It was a far from convincing performance by the Premier League champions and they had to battle back from going behind in the 25th minute after a blunder by their goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar.Rooney wasted another excellent opportunity to open his account after Ronaldo played him in and the England forward was made to pay immediately as Ono slalomed his way into the United box before finishing superbly to earn the Japanese outfit a share of the spoils.
