United v FC Copenhagen: Player ratings
Van der SAR - Considering United's dominance, he still had a few tasty saves to make to keep the Danes out 7
O'SHEA - Called into the line-up at the last minute, and responded with a goal that had all the luck of the Irish 6
BROWN - Another late stand-in, but showed his customary steel and composure whenever the visitors threatened 6
VIDIC - Gentle introduction to Old Trafford European nights for the Serb, and he took it in his loping stride 6
EVRA - Steady in defence, and it was his thrusting run that opened up the Copenhagen defence for Scholes' opener 6
CARRICK - Elegant and basic, but he kept things ticking nicely as the Reds eased into a two-goal lead 7
FLETCHER - Better player than many believe, but still lets himself down with poor decisions and odd lapses 6
RONALDO - Major threat in the first half, and entertained the crowd with some clever, but pointless, tricks after that 7
SCHOLES - His vision problems are clearly behind him after a stunning goal and some sublime passing 8
ROONEY - That confidence-boosting goal eluded him again, but his link-up play was brilliant at times. 8
SAHA - Should have had two or three goals, but made up for that with some excellent link play, teeing Scholes up for the opener 7
SMITH (for Saha 60) - Missed a great chance to score in front of Stretford End 5
SOLSKJAER (for Carrick 60) - Played on right flank, but made sure his presence was felt in the game 6
RICHARDSON (for Scholes 76) - Scored a flukey third when his shot deceived the excellent Christiansen 5
