Schalke 04 Vs. Manchester United, 2011 UEFA Champions League: Fabio Da Silva Booked

That's a clear yellow card for Fabio da Silva, who goes to ground and trips Jose Jurado as the Schalke player was attempting to surge up the wing. He doesn't complain about being shown a yellow card, to his credit, and Nemanja Vidic is more than happy to clear the ball when it's swung into the penalty box, starting a quick Manchester United break which is eventually thwarted by the offside flag, infuriating Wayne Rooney who rather correctly points out that he was not offside and thus a better passing outlet than Antonio Valencia, who was.

Schalke aren't really able to hit their guests on the counterattack and they're not about to really do much in terms of clever possession play, so it's all a little bit hit and hope from the home side at the minute. However, it's still 0-0 and Schalke have more of the ball than they did in the first half, so that's progress, I suppose.

Meanwhile, Manuel Neuer has touched the ball without being praised by Greame Souness, which is very strange. He was too busy talking about how Schalke have finally realised Manchester United are a good team and that they can't possibly hope to compare against a real English side.
