Cristiano Ronaldo scored an injury-time free-kick to give Manchester United a 2-1 win over Sporting Lisbon and enable them to clinch top spot in Champions League Group F.

Already qualified from their pool, the Red Devils fell behind when Tomasz Kuszczak allowed Abel´s driven cross-shot from the right touchline to beat him at his near post in the 21st minute.

But Carlos Tevez, on as a half-time substitute, was credited with the scrambled equaliser before Ronaldo scored his last-ditch winner from 25 yards out.
