United's star duo boost hopes...

There can be little doubt that Fergie will be glad that Brazil's interest in the Olympic Games has come to a shuddering end after being thumped 3-0 by South American rivals Argentina. The result means that Anderson is likely to be back in Manchester and ready for action in the next few days.

The Reds have an injury crisis on their hands and are currently without Carrick, Hargreaves, Ronaldo and Giggs. United's next game is away at Portsmouth and Fergie will want to take all three points from what is likely to be a very tough game.

Meanwhile, Owen Hargreaves has promised United fans that they've not seen the best of him yet. The former Bayern star is currently out suffering with a knee injury and he has suggested that whenever he's played he's only been 60% fit.

Hargreaves hasn't given any indication of when he's likely to be back in action, he is setting no targets for a return date apart from saying that once he is back he hopes it will be for the remainder of the season.

Whether or not Hargreaves will be fit in time to face Pompey time will tell, but it would be a massive boost for United if both Anderson and Hargreaves were available to face Harry Redknapp's side.


  1. sorry to burst your bubble but theres a little thing called the bronze medal game. . anderson wont be back any sooner

  2. Unfortunately for United, Brazil will play the bronze medal match Friday night (Beijing time). But since the Pompey game is not until Monday, I guess we can't rule Anderson out completely.
