Manchester United sealed qualification to the knock-out round of the Champions League on Tuesday night with a 1-0 win over minnows Young Boys. By progressing from a group that also includes Italian giants Juventus and Spanish perennials Valencia, the English side has already gone further than many expected them to, but, in characteristic style (nowadays), they didn't do it easily.
United looked unlikely to score for large parts of the game. Their forwards had more than a few chances, particularly Marcus Rashford, but by the end of the second half, as the spectators started to leave, it appeared that for once, even the United faithful had lost belief that a goal would come.
In reality, however, just as in Turin a few weeks earlier, there was to be a sting in United's tail, this time arriving from a Afro-less Marouane Fellaini who expertly controlled a header from Romelu Lukaku deep into injury time, spun and hit it blind across the opposing keeper and into the corner of the net sending the fans into raptures.
Still, even the joy of the fans, and a happily healthy looking Sir Alex Ferguson was nothing compared to manager Jose Mourinho's reaction to the drama.
As Manchester United players rushed towards their late saviour, Mourinho was by himself on the touchline. This ended up not being a good thing for the only object near him at that point -- the drinks cans for the players that were kept just off the field. They were packed into two holders. He promptly went and kicked one. And not content with that, he picked up the other and slammed it onto the turf, bottles and energy drinks falling pell-mell in every direction.
