Manchester United get past Benfica

Man U in their do or die Group F game against Benfica were almost laid low by this stunning 25-yard opening strike by Benfica fullback Nelson.They survived however…and eventually took the game 3 -1.(video highlights here)

And while we’re with Man U here is Alex Ferguson taking a break from patting himself on the back and coming to the defence of one Cristiano Ronaldo.
“I’ve looked at Saturday’s penalty incident a million times,” Ferguson said on Tuesday.
“Cristiano lost his balance completely and I think it was a penalty kick. The keeper tried to prevent him from scoring and in doing so Ronaldo lost his balance because of that.
“Gareth Southgate is very naive. He’s just a young manager. We’ll have to give him a chance to settle in.”
