Possebon: Man Utd youngsters played like Brazil

It might not have been the Maracana or the glorious weather he is used to - but for Rodrigo Possebon, Manchester United's Carling Cup win over QPR at a drenched Old Trafford was just like playing for Brazil.

The 18-year-old has made an eye-catching impression at United since arriving from his homeland in January.

Yet it appeared his promise would be held back for a while when he was carried off on a stretcher in the last round against Middlesbrough, the victim of an ugly red-card challenge from Emmanuel Pogatetz.

Remarkably, Possebon suffered nothing worse than a nasty gash - from which he has now recovered, allowing him to make his fourth senior appearance for the Red Devils in their narrow success over QPR last night.

It is perhaps little wonder then that Possebon got slightly carried away with himself as he assessed a victory that took United into the last eight.

"It was not really Brazilian weather, but I think the performance was like Brazil," he said.

"We passed the ball and kept it really well.

"We had to be patient and wait for the goal. But Carlos Tevez took his penalty really well, and we are all happy to get through."

With Sir Alex Ferguson pledging to give his promising youngsters another chance - no matter who United draw in the next round - Possebon is guaranteed another outing, with possibly a Champions League appearance against Aalborg to come shortly afterwards.

The under-19s international had to exorcise a few demons after the Pogatetz tackle.

But with his neat passing game and stylish manner, Possebon now seems destined for a big future.

"I have got what happened to me against Middlesbrough out of my head, so it was good to have a chance in the first team again," he said.

"This competition is important for the young lads, because the boss uses it to give us experience.

"It is unbelievable to train with so many great players every day.

"I am learning every minute. I have to pay attention all the time.

"It is very good here but it is nice to have the chance to perform."
