United comeback rocks Braga

Published Add your comment

Javier Hernandez was Manchester United's Champions League hero as the Red Devils hauled themselves back from two goals down to beat Braga 3-2 at Old Trafford.

Approaching the 26th anniversary of Sir Alex Ferguson's appointment as Red Devils manager, the comeback was a suitably fitting way to preserve his side's 100 per cent record and means, barring a complete collapse in their final three games, they will advance to next spring's knockout stage.

A double from Alan, with United defending looking suspect, put Braga 2-0 up within 20 minutes, but after Hernandez pulled one back soon after and Jonny Evans levelled after the break, the little Mexican capped a fine display by nodding home the winner from Tom Cleverley's cross 15 minutes from time.
