Three Reds On Target

God, I'm relieved these internationals are over and so far only Giggs' has some injury concerns. The others have done reasonably well, as three United player maanged to get onto the scoresheet in their respective games.

First, and foremost, Wayne Rooney has ended his one-year scoring drought for England when he gave the Three Lions the lead in the 37th minute. His strike was not enough to seal a win, though, for Van der Vaart equalised shortly before the final whistle. Michael Carrick and Rio Ferdinand played 90 minutes, the former was worryingly poor... Kieran Richardson got 12 minutes while Brown and Foster was sitting on the bench throughout the night.

Cristiano Ronaldo scored the second goal in Portugal's easy win over Kazakhstan and was substituted in the second half. It seems his ankle is not troubling him so he'll be fit for Sheffield.

Louis Saha played 45 minutes in France's 1-0 victory over Greece, while Patrice Evra came on as a substitute for Lyon's Eric Abidal.

Nemanja Vidic has scored his third goal of the season to give Serbia the lead against a Norway side lacking the injured Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. They've managed to equalise without the babyfaced assasin, though and have got a point.

All in all, it went reasonably well for United and now we must fully focus on Sheffield, and more importantly, on Celtic and Chelsea.
