Rooney inspires Man U to FA Cup win

LONDON -- Wayne Rooney was on the field for only 11 minutes but helped inspire Manchester United to a 2-0 FA Cup victory over Aston Villa on Saturday in a game watched by England's new coach, Fabio Capello.

Entering as a late substitute with the score 0-0, Rooney began the move that led to Cristiano Ronaldo sliding home Ryan Giggs' cross at the far post in the 81st minute. With a minute left, the England striker found Ronaldo with a crossing pass. When the Portuguese striker's shot was blocked by a defender, Rooney was in position to score from 20 yards.

This was Capello's first public appearance as England coach. The successful former coach at AC Milan, AS Roma, Juventus and Real Madrid has replaced Steve McClaren, who was fired in November after failing to get England to Euro 2008.

It was a fourth successive FA Cup triumph over Villa in seven years for United, the record 11-time champion whose latest victory came on a day of upsets in soccer's oldest and most famous domestic cup competition.

League One Oldham triumphed 1-0 at Everton thanks to Gary McDonald's winner at Goodison Park and Coventry won 4-1 at Blackburn, Maltese striker Michael Mifsud scoring twice. Another League Championship club, Sheffield United, won 1-0 at Bolton on a goal by David Carney, and League One Huddersfield ousted Birmingham City 2-1.

Defending champion Chelsea edged League Championship Queens Park Rangers 1-0 on an own-goal by visiting goalkeeper Lee Camp. Claudio Pizarro's first-half shot hit the post and then rebounded off the goalkeeper's body and into the net.

A week after Tottenham beat Reading 6-4 in the Premier League, the two teams drew 2-2 in the Cup. Dimitar Berbatov, who scored four times in the league game, netted both Spurs goals. Tottenham's Tom Huddlestone was sent off only two minutes after going on as a substitute, aiming a head-butt at Reading's American midfielder Bobby Convey in reaction to a tackle.

West Ham and Manchester City also face a replay after a 0-0 draw at Upton Park, but Wigan won 3-0 at Sunderland with goals by Paul Scharner and David Cotterill and Paul McShane's own-goal.

Arsenal, a 10-time FA Cup winner, plays Sunday at League Championship Burnley. Liverpool goes to League one Luton.

Spain
MADRID, Spain (AP) _ Rafael Marquez and Samuel Eto'o scored second-half goals to help FC Barcelona beat Mallorca 2-0 and move four points behind Spanish league leader Real Madrid.

Marquez headed in Xavi Hernandez's corner kick in the 63rd minute, and Eto'o scored against his former club with a long shot during injury time.

Second-place Barcelona's third win in nine matches on the road this season gave it 37 points. Madrid, which hosts Zaragoza on Sunday, has 41.

Barcelona was without injured forwards Lionel Messi and Ronaldinho, who has missed seven of his team's 18 league matches this season. Thierry Henry, who hadn't played since Nov. 24 because of back pain, reappeared as a 64th-minute substitute.

Meanwhile, third-place Espanyol extended its unbeaten league run to 14 games with a 3-0 win over fourth-place Villarreal.

Raul Tamudo scored twice to rise to the top of the league's scoring chart with 10 goals, level with Sevilla's Luis Fabiano. Valdo Lopes netted the other goal.

Portugal
LISBON, Portugal -- Substitute Edinho's 87th-minute header equalizer earned Setubal a 1-1 draw with Benfica in the Portuguese league.

The result lifted second-place Benfica to six points behind FC Porto, although the leader can extend its advantage to nine on Sunday with a home win over Naval.

Third-place Sporting Lisbon missed the chance to close the gap on Porto when it lost 2-0 at struggling Boavista.

Scotland
GLASGOW, Scotland -- Rangers beat Dundee United 2-0 and climbed above Celtic to the top of the Scottish Premier League.

Celtic's game against Motherwell was postponed following the death of Motherwell captain Phil O'Donnell during a game last weekend. O'Donnell collapsed while walking off the field and died of heart failure.

The postponement gave Walter Smith's Rangers the chance to go to first place with a game in hand. Steven Naismith and Barry Ferguson scored in the first half.

Rangers have 44 points from 19 games, Celtic 43 from 20 and third-place Motherwell 35 from 20.

Greece
ATHENS, Greece -- Darko Kovacevic scored two goals in two minutes to lead defending champion Olympiakos over Iraklis 2-1 and into first place in the Greek league.

Olympiakos has 34 points and is one ahead of AEK Athens, which plays at Asteras on Sunday.
