Man Utd. Carling Cup Champions
Manchester United beat Tottenham Hotspur 4-1 on penalties yesterday to win the Carling Cup. After a scoreless 89 minutes, Cristiano Ronaldo almost stole the winner for United after he cut to his left, and smacked a shot off the post in the 90th minute. The game went into extra time. After a scoreless half an hour, the game went into penalties. Ryan Giggs scored for Manchester United on his first penalty. Jamie O'Hara's penalty was saved by Ben Foster, who was accused of possibly cheating because he studied Tottenham penalties on his iPod right before the shootout. After that it was all United and when Anderson scored on his penalty, Manchester United were crowned champions of the Carling Cup.
