United winger Thomas Muller burst down the right flank and was about to play Antoni Timotheou in on goal when he was brought down from behind by Marko Vrkic. It looked a blatant foul, which could easily have been a straight 10

"We couldn't fix it in the forest and had to limp out and get back to service, so we lost a whole bunch of time. "It was unlucky but part of rally 7
