An injury time header by Vidic has Manchester United up going in to half time.
John Terry found himself diving in front of some driven chances by Park and then a few seconds later, by Fletcher. In fact, it was this last blocked shot which went out for the corner.
Man U took it too quickly and in spite of a Ronaldo finish and much to the initial anguish of Old Trafford, the ref called it back to be done correctly. Not to worry Old Trafford fans, the second effort – this time done correctly – was spot on. A clever flick on by Berbetov found an unmarked Vidic diving in to bounce a rather easy one past Cech.
Spirits are high going in to the half time break, so I’m definitely looking forward to picking this one up again for the second half.
