Rooney brace as United reach final

Published Add your comment

Wayne Rooney scored twice after his introduction as a late substitute as Manchester United booked a Club World Cup Final meeting with LDU Quito following their 5-3 triumph over Gamba Osaka.

United had already established superiority thanks to first-half headers from Nemanja Vidic and Cristiano Ronaldo.

But Rooney's arrival led to a frenzied spell of six goals in 18 minutes, the England man netting either side of a Darren Fletcher effort as the Red Devils kept spirited Gamba resistance at bay.
