Schalke 04 Vs. Manchester United, 2011 UEFA Champions League: Wayne Rooney Doubles Lead

After the goal, I asked whether Manchester United would push for more goals to kill off the tie or simply sit back and relax, to which the answer was pretty obvious - they were going to keep going full-speed. And it's paid off with another goal, this time via the boot of Wayne Rooney, who scored with an almost carbon-copy of Gigg's finish after being set free by Javier Hernandez. Although Manuel Neuer had been keeping the visitors at bay almost singlehandedly for most of the match, he couldn't do anything about those two goals.

So, there are changes in the air with the game (and possibly tie) sewn up. With Sir Alex Ferguson looking towards the weekend's clash against Arsenal at the Emirates, Paul Scholes and Anderson have been introduced for Park Ji-Sung and Javier Hernandez respectively. Schalke have also made a substitution: On comes Sergio, off is Hans Sharpei, who had just picked up a booking for a foul on Antonio Valencia. It's been a rough few minutes for the hosts.
