Wayne Rooney, Man United

Manchester United 3-1 Braga

Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie and Javier Hernandez all scored late goals in the last 10 minutes as Manchester United deeated Braga 3-1 in Group H, putting them into the Champions League knockout round.

Wayne Rooney maintained United's 100 per cent record in Europe this season with a penalty before Javier Hernandez added a third.

The squads were in the dark when the floodlights on one of the ground's two stands went out. United's fans sang "We're Man United, we play in the dark." The problem was caused by a broken generator and both teams came back out to restart the game after a 10-minute delay.

Ferguson took advantage of the unscheduled break to replace Evans with Rio Ferdinand.

Fergie made his second change, bringing van Persie on at 64 minutes.

Van Persie's opening goal for United was his third goal in four Champions League appearances and on 84 minutes Rooney scored the second. Hernandez scored the third United goal in the second minute of stoppage time.
