United down Schalke to edge towards final


Manchester United took a giant step towards the Champions League final with a convincing 2-0 win over Schalke in the first leg of their semi-final at the Veltins-Arena on Tuesday.

Midfielder Ryan Giggs broke the deadlock after 67 minutes thanks to a brilliant through ball from England international Wayne Rooney who turned scorer almost immediately, firing in from a similar position.

Victory means United remain well on course to reach a third final in four years.

Both teams meet again on the 4th of May at Old Trafford.
