Comeback heroes

Like in the first group encounter between Braga and United last month where the Portuguese side took a 2-0 lead quickly and gave United a hard time, they did it once again last night by taking a 1-0 lead 4 minutes into the second half, and after seeing a rather awful first half by United. Alan was yet again the scorer as he blasted in a penalty past De Gea. United created little as Braga looked to get a second, and eventually SAF decided to bring on RvP from the bench, and the Dutchman lit up the fireworks on the 80th minute, a goal which gave the whole United team a boost, and four minutes later Rooney added a second from the spot, this time going for power instead of finesse like against Arsenal. Chicharito sealed the comeback on the 92nd minute, and guaranteed that United proceed to the next stage of the competition with still 2 games left and top of the group irrespective of the results from the 2 remaining games, and surely which will allow SAF to rest the stars and play with the young lads instead.
