United goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar was their hero after saving three penalties in the shootout, leaving England striker Wayne Rooney to score with the decisive spot kick at Wembley.

Ryan Giggs gave United a 35th minute lead with a sweetly-struck shot but Chelsea's new France winger Florent Malouda levelled with a fine solo goal just before halftime.
