VIDEO: Ronaldo, Vidic, Rooney and Fletcher’s Goals In World Club Cup Semi

Manchester United take on Gamba Osaka in the FIFA World Club Cup semi-final today. Nemanja Vidic put United 1-0 up with half an hour played, putting away a Ryan Giggs corner, before Ronaldo used his head to score from another Giggsy corner.

Vidic makes it 1-0

Ronaldo puts us 2-0 up just before half time

Masato Yamazaki scores for the opposition, before Wayne Rooney almost immediately scores United’s third.

Darren Fletcher makes it 4-1

Giggs gets another assist, setting up Rooney for his second of the match. That’s three goals in five minutes for United.

The game finished 5-3, with Osaka scoring twice in the last five minutes, one of which being a penalty conceded by Neville. We play Ecuador’s LDU Quito in the final on Sunday.

  4. DanS says:

    Just watched it. Good second half

  5. Gabriel says:

    Feckin brilliant end to the game… wish Ronaldo put that last free kick in, would have been even better! :)

  6. Oooodz says:

    south americans won’t forgive us for this kind of jokes

  8. Fred the Red 10 says:

    Follow Follow Follow … cuz United are going to Tokyo :p or close to it

  9. cherry says:

    I have never seen quito play, but my inner feelings are telling me that they will give us a stern test. Nevertheless, I still fancy us for the cup. I just hope that fergie will keep Gary on the bench for that match. He has lost it, he should accept that and humbly bow out.

    As for Nani, he is not a united class, I think fergie should just release him. He was the poorest for us today.

    Good game over all but what is happening to our defence? we were not that generous for ages now!

  10. malice_mizer says:

    wats the point of playing full team.. they arent event half arse bout it.. especially giggs.. maybe their still recovering from jet legged?.. one more game to go.

  11. RedHarry4life says:

    Though we were very careless with our passing to-day. Everyone was to blame on occassions. Good result. Sunday 21/12/2008 10:30 channel 5 tune into hopefully see us crowned world champions again. This would make this team the 2nd greatest English club side of all time.

  12. RedHarry4life says:

    The greatest ever english club side?

  13. RedHarry4life says:

    The answer of course being the 99 team that also won the FA CUP. Maybe this

  14. Oooodz says:

    RedHarry4life, thank you for that

  15. suhayl says:

    good win

  16. suhayl says:

    final here we come

  17. TonyBee says:

    Wonde if SAF will put out a more competetive team or issue instructions for the win… they seem to stroll through the game ….HMMM…I wonder..!

  18. King Eric says:

    A good win but I thought it was a very “odd” game, at times almost like a testimonial. Excellent comment by SAF at end regarding the Ronaldo saga. Legand. Thought it was funny Fat Stan Collynore trying to second guess SAF. He was basically saying that he believes the media and tabloids about Ronaldo and that is why Fergie bought Berba so that when we sell Ronaldo he can then slot in to Rons position……Blah blah blah. Shut up Stan you fat cunt.

    Was it just me or did the other commentator keep calling Nani Evra and vice versa? Learn ya players pal, found that quite annoying. Fucking cameras nearly missed Rooneys goals by showing copious amounts of replays.

    Tevez “goal” was never offside IMO. Thought we looked better in attack by playing striker off shoulder of last defender, Tevez then Roon. More effective than the usual one – twos around the 18 yard box. Hate to say it and only saying what everyone thinks but Gaz Neville is starting to look more out of his depth every game he plays. Good to see Scholesy start. some great balls by Ando. thought Nani was pretty much ineffective- Again!

    VDS pulled off some excellent saves and for me still our No 1 keeper by a distance. Ronaldo good first half, even tracking back on number of occasions. Some positives to take from game and heres hoping we win on Sunday. Just the thing we need to get us back into our stride for Stoke on Boxing day then kick on for second part of season. Come on United!

  19. suhayl says:

    King on 100%. Was going to say the exact same things…stan fuckin shite collymore’s stupid comments…nani was called evra true…etc etc etc. Your summary was brilliant

    Hope we do defend better…the s americans really take this tournament seriously…hence end up winning it most times. They’ll be technical and tricky, so hope we are solid and become the world champs on sunday…what a lift that would be for our xmas games

  20. Red-Manc says:

    I cant see the benefit of playing a full team, Welbeck Possebon Rafael etc would be perfect for matches like this there top class players and could of got the job done and would gain some experience.

    was a entertaining match though, there was a fair few english fans over there as well which surprised me think 800 went over, wish I’d gone now actually.

  21. LB says:

    Thanks for putting up all the 5 GOAAAALLLLL videos, which I’d missed otherwise.

  22. OTRed says:

    The same Collymore who wrote an article warning United about Al- Ahly in the FCWW, the same day they were knocked out. He was also the guy who wrote an article about Berbatov needing to prove his worth and then Berba scores 2 goals the day after that. He was also the same guy who was probably the only one in England(besides Liverpool fans) that thought Gerrard didn’t dive. Still on him, he was the same guy who said that the Bolton player tripping Ronaldo that resulted in that penalty wasn’t at fault but that it was Ronaldo’s fault due to his height and the way he runs.

    I’ve stopped taking him serious eons ago.

    Just 2 thoughts about Prissy Crissy…
    1 – Messi doesn’t score that header
    2 – They worship him over there in a Becks-esque way. Maybe all that admiration will somehow improve his mindset and he’ll get back to playing PRODUCTIVE football and quit poncing around.

  24. k9 says:

    Where is it being shown? Any of the sports channels?
