Brazilian blend is Fergie's Carling Cup of cheer..

United took on plucky QPR in the rainy city last night, like the weather of late, it turned out to be a rather damp affair. Not unexpectedly, the Lodoners' were encamped within their own half for long periods of the game and it wasn't until the 73rd minute that they registered their first effort on goal.

For their part, the Red Devils made eight changes to the starting eleven that faced Arsenal at the weekend. Rodrigo Possebon came into midfield after his recent injury and could have scored. Park was unlucky with a rasping second-half effort which rebounded off the woodwork, but as hard as United tried they didn't create many clear-cut goalscoring opportunities and once again Carlos Tevez was alone up front for United.

With the game looking likely to go into extra time - the absolute worst scenario for those in the Old Trafford stands - and then to the relief of the home crowd, second half substitute Danny Wellbeck was felled inside the QPR penatly area and United were awarded a just spot-kick which Carlos Tevez converted, in doing so sending the 'keeper the wrong way.

After the game, Fergie praised Wellbeck saying 'he made the difference'. No doubting Fergie will also have been pleased with his two young Brazilian stars, Rafael da Silva and Possebon, who both continue to look like players with excellent futures at the club. United are in the last eight of the competition - it can only get better from here on in, can't it?.
