This is a match remembered mainly for one thing – a Jerzy Dudek howler that presented Diego Forlan with the opening goal. Despite going onto great things in his career, Forlan hadn’t enjoyed a particularly successful spell with United but was handed a goal on a plate after the Polish goalkeeper dropped a loose ball straight at his feet.
