Man United thump Kiev to maintain perfect start

October 24, 2007 10:04 IST

Cristiano Ronaldo [Images] scored twice as Manchester United romped to a 4-2 away win at Dynamo Kiev on Tuesday to make it three wins from three in Champions League Group F.

England [Images] defender Rio Ferdinand headed home a Ryan Giggs freekick on 10 minutes and an unmarked Wayne Rooney [Images] doubled the lead with a simple tap-in eight minutes later.

Dynamo, having been outplayed for the opening half hour, got one back when Brazilian Diogo Rincon powerfully headed home Carlos Correa's corner 10 minutes before halftime.

But their joy was shortlived as Ronaldo headed home another Giggs cross to restore United's two-goal lead before the break.

Ronaldo grabbed his second from the penalty spot on 68 minutes after Goran Gavrancic had handled.

Ismael Bangoura pulled another back on 78 minutes but defeat leaves Kiev without a point from three games.
