Sorensen braced for much busier time

When Manchester United’s England internationals take to the field at Old Trafford today they will be greeted with an instant reminder of Wednesday night’s capitulation in Copenhagen.

Keeping goal for Aston Villa will be Thomas Sorensen, the amiable Dane who had so little to do at Parken stadium that he could have been Authentic Prada Leather Handbag forgiven had he opted to Best Prada Outlet In Italy spend the second half rejoicing with his fellow countrymen behind the goal he was guarding.

Today, though, promises to be an entirely different proposition. Villa have failed to win at Old Trafford for 22 years and their hopes of ending that dismal sequence of results are not helped by the news that Kevin Phillips and Martin Laursen Authentic Prada Messenger Bag For Sale have joined Patrik Berger and Mark Delaney in the treatment room. Perhaps more significantly United, unlike England, are hungry. “I think it is fair to say I will be a little bit busier than I was on Wednesday,” said Sorensen.

That Sorensen was forced to break into a sweat at all against England was largely attributable to Wayne Rooney. The 19-year-old striker, who scored a late consolation, was one of the few England players to emerge from the 4-1 defeat with his reputation intact. It is the teenager’s ability to combine boundless determination with sublime skill and awareness that continues to astound, though Sorensen, who was also beaten by Rooney when Denmark played England at Old Trafford in 2003, Authentic Prada Bags Outlet Online is no longer surprised by anything that the United striker produces.

“Wayne Rooney is one of the best players in the world,” said the Dane. “He has goalscoring capabilities replica prada handbags, he can set up other players as well and that gives a team a lot of options. He is here, there and everywhere. He has a huge amount of quality and proved it with the chance he took against us on Wednesday night. But Denmark largely kept him quiet and we won the game, Authentic Prada Bags Uk so hopefully we can do the same thing Biggest Prada Store In London with Villa.”

The task of developing a plan to subdue Rooney falls largely on David O’Leary. The Villa manager, who may well suffocate midfield to achieve that aim, can recall only About Prada Products one player during his time who exuded the same illimitable confidence as Rooney.

“I remember being with Roy Keane a couple of weeks before he was going to Manchester United,” said O’Leary. “In his eye there was a look that said, ‘I know I’m good and I know I’m going to be Black Prada Bag Mission Impossible a great player for that club.’

“When you are dealing with a club like Manchester United there is a certain animal of a player who has to go there to Biggest Prada Outlet In Italy perform on the stage. [Rooney] is turned on by that, he’s not in awe of it, he respects it but it inspires him. He doesn’t freeze.”

O’Leary will need his own teenager, Luke Moore, to adopt a similarly brazen approach if he plays a part at Old Trafford today. The 19-year-old, one of only three strikers in Villa’s threadbare squad, could find himself partnering Juan Pablo Angel in attack.

It is a scenario that highlights why the Villa manager is so keen to sign Milan Baros among others. “I am desperate and the club are trying their utmost to bring people into the football club,” said O’Leary. “I am hopeful to have a few players in here in the next 10 days without a doubt.”

Sorensen might well hope that there is an Englishman to ridicule among the newcomers, though the Villa goalkeeper did offer Are Prada Nylon Bags Worth The Money some words of comfort to Sven-Goran Eriksson’s crestfallen team.

“I still expect them to be among the favourites for the World Cup,” he said. “They have so many options going forward which can only make them exciting to watch and also get them the goals to get results. What is against them is the pressure from the public, who expect them to do much better.”
