meeting the showdown they dare not lose. the former everton midfielder leon osman is part of the friday football social on radio five live tonight and hejoins us now. it's fascinating this fixture between these two teams. i wonder firstly what you made of ole gunnar solskj rand how he came across today facing the press and the comments that he made considering those last five days that he must�*ve had. i those last five days that he must've had. . . those last five days that he must've had. , . ., .., ., ., had. i expected him to come out in a defiant mood — had. i expected him to come out in a defiant mood to _ had. i expected him to come out in a defiant mood to try _ had. i expected him to come out in a defiant mood to try and _ defiant mood to try and galvanise his team, to try and make sure that everybody on the outset thanks and has the feeling that him and his team are one bonded unit, that they are together and they're pulling in the same direction. because that was in evidence certainly at two against liverpool at the weekend that they're on the same page. i think that was the first thing they he
6:37 pm
needed to address. i'll based on a team of a cell unit good? he was very adamant about that but he needs a performance, he needs a result. quite often you say when managers are under pressure as long as they get the result in the next game they will be fine. well i think manchester united a past that. i think they not doing that need to start showing performances. they are in that position now where they need to start getting results with the new no similar, nuno has been at the club is a short period of time for them what was expected when he'd join some of these and it difficult position they lost more games they certainly can more goals it's not 19- certainly can more goals it's not 19— ten in all competition. they'll be a lot of edge in this game tomorrow. a lot of pressure to get the winning goal and the waiting game. the winning goal and the waiting came. ., ., ., ., game. you mentioned that word performance _ game. you mentioned that word performance was _ game. you mentioned that word performance was up _ game. you mentioned that word performance was up i _ game. you mentioned that word performance was up i suppose l game. you mentioned that word i performance was up i suppose my manchester united fans in particular will be looking to the game tomorrow, that's can be one thing that they're going to expect firstly from team selection from ole gunnar
6:38 pm
solskj rand also the players and how they perform. considering as well it's a big week ahead, dave atlanta in the champions league in the manchester derby. there is no room for them not to show up, is they are? trio room for them not to show up, is the are? ., room for them not to show up, is they are?— they are? no there isn't. i don't think weeks _ they are? no there isn't. i don't think weeks will— they are? no there isn't. i don't think weeks will get _ they are? no there isn't. i don't think weeks will get any - they are? no there isn't. i don't think weeks will get any betterl think weeks will get any better doing bigger in the career of ole gunnar solskj r. certainly as a manager when you're under this amount of pressure and the games coming up are away. tottenham away from the champions league and then at homes your biggest rival. you basically... they need three wins but i don't think they become more difficult, the games. certainly you'd be hard—pressed to find three more difficult games where you probably need to win at least two of them. but as i said, the manner manchester united performances of late is what's brought this to the front. they haven't been losing games, they've not really been turning up in games, they been rolling, but been very easy to

they hit the ball, bring it on. i can tell you that in the last few minutes pakistan have been involved in another thrilling finish. pakistan are chasing a target of 148 to beat afghanistan in their super 12 match. afghanistan won the toss and chose to bat but a collapse looked on the cards when they drifted to 76 for six. but their innings was salvaged by gulbadin naib and skipper mohammad nabi, who put on 71, and the side finished their 20 overs 147 for 6. pakistan anyway were deliveries before departing for 51. it had begun to fall but ally has just hit four sixes and won over. pakistan won by six wickets. at third victory of the competition. well england and australia are joint top of their group and they play each other tomorrow in dubai. in an ashes year, any match between the sides will give the winners an edge. on top of that, the return
