Bebe triumphs with late equalizer for Manchester United (in a friendly)

We've all made jokes about Bebe and his ill-advised, sight-unseen transfer from the Portuguese third division to Manchester United for £7.4 million in 2010. Though it seemed his season-long loan to Besiktas only made things worse as he was plagued by injury and disciplinary issues, Bebe has returned to Man United and he is ready to make the club his springboard to superstardom. Or something.

Man United trailed Ajax Cape Town 1-0 in the second preseason friendly of their South African tour until Bebe presumably said something like, "Let me show you how it's done," and scored a skillful goal to save his club (yes, HIS club) a minor embarrassment.

Is this the start of the Bebe era at Man United? I think we all know the answer...
