Just when it looked like a goal wasn’t going to come and the thought of a potential replay was on United fans lips, we finally made the breakthrough in the 71st minute as Nani fired a volley past a helpless Federici in the Reading goal. A second was added 2 minutes later when Chicharito headed home a superb Nani cross.
United now await the winner of the Middlesbrough and Chelsea game, and the winner of that will come to Old Trafford with a trip to Wembley and a place in the semi-final at stake.
The only downside from last night is the injury to Phil Jones, he left the ground on crutches and his foot was in a protective boot. Lets hope the injury isn’t as serious as it looked.
