Manchester United winger Nani insists his club's belief they will go all the way in this season's Champions League remains unshaken, despite knowing they are unlikely to advance as group winners.

Tuesday's 2-2 draw with Benfica means the Portuguese giants will top Group C on their head-to-head record against United if both sides win their final matches and finish level on 12 points - meaning United will face a group winner in the knockout stages - a list that could potentially include Bayern Munich, Inter Milan and Real Madrid, Barcelona.

But despite drawing three times in their five European games so far, and not beating anyone other than Otelul, winger Nani insists United can make their presence felt, saying: "If we do finish second and get a big team that is no problem for us. If you have ambitions to get to the Champions League final you are always going to get a top side."
