Most of us were on tenterhooks coming into this game so the Mexicans goal to settle the nerves for us as well as the players was brilliant and after that it was all systems go. We were relaxed, composed and assured in our play and it told as we extended our lead through a Nemanja Vidic header following a cross from none other than (Sir) Ryan Giggs.
As mentioned in the preview, Valencia gave Cole a frightful time whilst Park Ji Sung was a ball of energy all over the pitch making tackles pressing as well as laying on the pass for Hernandez’s goal. Cometh the hour cometh the man and today United really stood up, each player had a say in the 2-1 win and it is one to be savoured.
I don’t want to go overboard with the superlatives but United really did deserve this and now with just one point needed it looks ever likely that United will go on to get that sacred 19th title.
