Devil's Destiny...



I really need to post this. At least my effort to stay awake at 3 am was certainly worth while since this match is a crucial one for my fav team. The game was interesting and breathtaking enough to make me stick alone in the dark in front of the TV..and oh, for non-MU fans and 'I'm not into football what more, MU stuff'...no need to read this.

Finally, United destiny comes to finale.Man Utd came back from a goal down to beat Benfica 3-1 as winners of Group F to book a place in the Champions League knockout phase .Personally, I think, United, who went into the game only need a draw to be sure of qualifying, thus, they fully deserved this victory. United back-to-back defeats to FC Copenhagen and Celtic desperately need to avoid defeat in order to prevent Benfica bundling them out at the group stage for the second successive season. Man U made an aggressive enough start and were clearly looking for their Portuguese winger Cristiano Ronaldo to conjure up something special. But nothing happened..Thankfully, after a bit of a false start,and after a shocking 27th minute strike by Nelson from Benfica, Nemanja Vidic levelled right on half-time, providing the platform for Ryan Giggs and Louis Saha to score in the second period. Phew..

So, with Celtic losing their final game to Coppenhagen, United advance into the last 16 as Group F winners, will hopefully offering a supposedly easier passage into the latter stages. Although my Wayne Rooney has been awarded with this gold card and the failure of 2 freekicks attempt by Cristiano Ronaldo , there r nothing compared to this victory..hehe

And I, sitting drowsily,hopelessly in front of this computer, really have to get back to work..huhu
