Praise for hero Foster

Sir Alex Ferguson hailed Ben Foster's penalty stop which helped Manchester United to the Carling Cup. After a goalless 120 minutes, the showpiece event at Wembley went to a penalty shoot-out. And Foster - who made a couple of great stops during the match - was on hand to push Tottenham's opening spot-kick from Jamie O'Hara around the post. David Bentley then missed before Anderson slotted home the successful spot-kick for United. "They took their penalties very confidently and Ben Foster made a great save, which gives us a big lift," Ferguson told Sky Sports. "To be honest we could have done without the extra-time but I suppose Tottenham will be saying the same. "Come Wednesday I will need to freshen up, the league remains the priority with the UEFA Champions League of course." Foster was named Man of the Match and he was delighted to lift the trophy. "It is fantastic, it was a crazy game," he told Sky Sports. "The last 30 minutes were played at walking pace but it was fantastic to get the win. "The pitch was starting to tear up but it is the same for both teams, they put us under pressure but it is awesome. "We are Manchester United and we want to win everything."
