He hard work was finally paid as he scored on 70 minute.The goal held United’s perfect group result as Roma kept their part of unbeaten form in Europe. Vucinic and Mancini were the only few players that were impressive for the night.Rooney was back in his old touch.Fletcher is still searching for is old for while Eagles maturing in United’s first team players.
Match and ordinary one with Fergie nothing much to speak except for United’s raw talent.
I was pleased with a lot of it, it was a very good experience.There wasn’t a great deal at stake but both sides played with freedom and good expression and it was a good contest. We lacked experience at times but made up for it with ability on the ball and we can be happy against a strong team.
