Basle break United hearts – for Nick W.

Sir Alex Ferguson

Manchester United have crashed out of the Champions League after a 2-1 defeat to Basle.

Sir Alex Ferguson’s men never recovered from Marco Streller’s ninth-minute goal.

Alexander Frei added another six minutes from time and though Phil Jones pulled one back it was too little, too late for United.

The visitors got off to the worst possible start when a penalty area collision between Nemanja Vidic and Chris Smalling offered Xherdan Shaqiri the opportunity to collect a loose ball before drilling a cross across the visitors’ goal.
