Video highlights: The Carling Cup Final
Man Utd win strange little three-handled trophy
Manchester Utd 0/ Tottenham 0 (Manchester Utd win 4-1 on penalties)
Congratulations are due to the person who edited the video above, as we wouldn’t have been able to squeeze 5 minutes and sixteen seconds of highlights out of yesterday’s Carling Cup match. In a game where the brilliantly pointless ‘fan-o-meter’ kept us up to date with decibel noises around Wembley, neither keeper had much work to do until the shoot-out.
Rather than put strikers up for penalties first – the guys who are paid to score goals – ‘Arry decided to go with Jamie O’Hara, Vedran Corluka and David Bentley. Presumably, Heurelho Gomes and Sandra Redknapp were due to take penalties four and five, but were denied the chance when O’Hara and Bentley failed to convert.
