United crowned World Champions

Published Add your comment

Wayne Rooney slotted home the goal that saw 10-man Manchester United crowned Club World Cup winners with a 1-0 victory in Yokohama.

United were always on top against Ecuador's LDU Quito, even after Nemanja Vidic had been sent off four minutes into the second half for an elbow on Claudio Bieler.

Rooney ensured the Red Devils got the reward they deserved with a clinical strike from Cristiano Ronaldo's pass 16 minutes from time.
