Manchester United beat AC Milan 3-2 in the last 16 of the Champions League at Italy's San Siro stadium.

Wayne Rooney was the match-winner, scoring two second-half goals to help United continue their unbeaten away run in Europe.

Rooney's goals came after Paul Scholes' equaliser, whilst Ronhaldino and Seedorf scored Milan's two goals.

The second leg of the Champions League tie will happen at Old Trafford on March 10.

Beckham had a role to play

The match was a huge one for AC Milan's David Beckham, who played for Manchester United for 12 years and supported them when he was a child.

When he left Old Trafford there were rumours that he wasn't getting on too well with manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

But when they met last season they shook hands, and Beckham said he sees Fergie as "a father figure".

Beckham is on loan to AC Milan from Los Angeles Galaxy.
