In front of tens of thousands of flag-waving and chanting fans, Manchester United players and retiring manager Alex Ferguson paraded the Premier League trophy through packed city streets on a second day of jubilant celebrations for the English champions.
After dominating the first legs of their Champions League semifinals, Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund lead the latest Associated Press global soccer poll.
It's turning into a procession for Bayern Munich in the Associated Press global soccer poll.
The forward completed Madrid's comeback in the 69th minute to secure a 3-2 aggregate win after the Spanish champions took advantage of United being reduced to 10 men.
A big reason why Manchester United now have a good chance of knocking Real Madrid out of the Champions League is also a big reason why Alex Ferguson has had so much success in 26 years at the club: because in tight spots, when the need for results is acute, Ferguson has faith in young people.
Lionel Messi's domination of European soccer was clear in the Associated Press Global Soccer Rankings, while his team Barcelona stayed at the top of the poll.
It took something very special to topple Lionel Messi from his position on top of the first AP Global Football rankings survey of 2013, and Edinson Cavani's perfect hat trick for Napoli did it.
Actor Tom Cruise was in the crowd, but Robin van Persie was the top gun. He supplied the Hollywood ending on a day of thunder for English soccer because it suggested the Premier League title will move across Manchester again at the end of the season, but this time from City back to United.
Inter Milan moved to the top of the AP Global 10 soccer rankings by The Associated Press on Tuesday, replacing Barcelona after ending Juventus' 49-match unbeaten run.
Two minutes, 34 seconds. That's all it took for Robin van Persie to score in his first match against Arsenal and, in doing so, prove how ridiculous it is to imagine that his former team somehow struck a canny deal in selling him.
Jose Mourinho should send his dry-cleaning bill to Roberto Mancini, with an attached note: "Roberto, will you pay this? It was, after all, partly your fault."
Sshhh! Don't say this too loudly, but early signs point to Arsenal being a genuine Premier League title contender.
With the end of the group stage, Euro 2012 is more than two-thirds complete _ 24 matches have been played and just seven are left, culminating with the July 1 final in Kiev.
Cristiano Ronaldo finally found the form he was lacking at the European Championship, scoring twice Sunday to give Portugal a 2-1 win over the Netherlands and a spot in the quarterfinals.
Germany beat Portugal 1-0 Saturday on the second day at the European Championship. Earlier, Denmark pulled off a shock 1-0 win over the Netherlands. Here is a running account of Saturday's play. All times are local to Poland.
"It feels absolutely amazing ... it's been worth the wait," said Van Persie, the striker and top scorer who won the title in his first season with United and was serenaded by teammates. "I've had to wait quite a long time."
"I'm very happy with this man," Van Persie added, giving his new teammate a hearty slap on the shoulder.
