subs - Simpson, Foster, Fletcher, Martin & Richardson. Players substituted - O`Shea (dead leg), Park, Giggs, Carrick & VDS. When O`Shea went off Bardsley moved to centre half and Simpson played right back.
VDS and Foster both made great saves, Brown was outstanding as were Scholes and Rooney before they were sent off. Carrick made a good debut. Bardsley was a little shaky at the beginning of the match but soon settled down, and later made a great tackle to prevent a certain goal. Richardson and Martin both looked lively when they came on and helped to stretch Porto late in the game. Park was his usual lively self. I thought O`Shea did well at centre half as well, he wasn`t suppose to play but Ferdinnd picked up an injury in the warm up which will keep him out for about a week.
