4-4-1-1. Paul Scholes 45' is adjudged to be offside when replays show he was clearly on. Ronaldo only lasts 8' before he is stretchered off. Utd keeper Tim Howard fails to deal with Benni McCarthy's free kick & Costinha with an easy chance eliminates Utd from the competition. Future Utd manager Jose Mourinho runs in celebration up the touch line emphatically celebrating.
