City defend incredibly and the whistle blows to end the game.

92:00 – Bellamy breaks clear but an errant pass ends up in Scholes feet who pushes forward. Rooney ends up with the ball just outside of the box and with some nimble footwork sends a low shot in that is expertly saved by Given and goes out for a corner.
