Nani outshines Ronaldo as Fletcher suffers defeat

The Euro 12 qualifying matches on the weekend provided starkly contrasting fortunes for two of Manchester United’s internationals. While Nani was turning on a dazzling performance in Portugals’ 3-1 home defeat of Denmark, Darren Fletcher and Scotland went down 0-1 to the Czech Republic in Prague to leave the Scots trailing in second place behind Spain in their group. They now face a crunch match with the world champions at Hampden Park on Tuesday night.

van der Sar’s hunger is the secret of a winner

It’s a well known fact that Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs is the most decorated footballer in England, possibly anywhere. But his team mate Edwin van der Sar is not all that far behind. The former Netherlands goalkeeper who will hit the big four 0 in October made his senior debut for Ajax Amsterdam in 1990-91, the same season that 17 year old Giggs made his breakthrough into the first team at Old Trafford. Since then, the 6ft 6inch Dutchman has won 7 League titles and 2 European Champion League winning medals between the two clubs but he has made it clear that he’s still hungry for more.
