Roma 0 - Man Utd 2

A great win for United. In fact an amazing win. Going into the second leg (@ Old Trafford) of the quarterfinals of the Champions League tournament with a 2 goal lead is a great run to be in. I hope we can continue this 'oh-so' lovely run and play the football we have been playing all this while.

Goals from Cristiano Ronaldo - his 36th of the season - and Wayne Rooney put United in the driving seat with a 2-0 win over Roma to take into the second leg at Old Trafford next week.
Ronaldo made the breakthrough in the 33rd minute, and Rooney added a second in the 67th minute to leave Roma dispirited.

Ronaldo made the breakthrough with a brave header, and Rooney's was a simple tap-in after Park Ji-Sung had headed the ball into the area from the back post. What an awesome night it was for United. I hope and pray they really continue to play like this throughout.

Sadly, United's celebrations were tempered as defender Nemanja Vidic was forced to come off with a knee injury in the 33rd minute. I hope it is nothing serious. Wish you the very best Vidic, hope you heal fast.

Glory Glory Man Utd!
