Rooney the hero for United (Carling Cup roundup)


What an entertaining two-leg semifinal, eh?

Manchester United and Manchester City played about as fun a home-and-home series you'll see at the end of a tournament.

Carlos Tevez had the two-goal display and exchanged taunts with Gary Neville in the first game.

Then on Wednesday, Craig Bellamy gets hit by a coin thrown from the crowd and Tevez had a late goal that equalized the aggregate score. In the end, United got a 90th-minute winner from Wayne Rooney to advance to the Carling Cup final.

The Red Devils take on Aston Villa for the trophy on Feb. 28.

Congrats to you Manchester boys. That was as good as it gets.
