Fergie beaming after Porto win

Cristiano Ronaldo sent United to the Champions League semi-finals with a incredible rocket goal.

“Unbelievable, a magnificent hit,” he said. “He took them all by surprise from 40-yards out – the goalkeeper had no chance.”

Fergie also took time to heap praise on defensive duo Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand after the game.

“They did well,” he told Sky Sports. “They had good concentration at the back – they defended very, very well.

“That was key for us. If we can get back to that foundation of not conceding away goals then we can do well.

“The stability at the back, the recognition of Ferdinand and Vidic together, it’s always going to be a great start for your team.”
