The Happy Da Silva’s

Rafael Da Silva and his brother Fabio celebrate the latter's opening goal against Arsenal

Manchester United beat Arsenal 2-0 in the FA Cup quarter-final at Old Trafford – and look how pleased their Brazilian twins Rafael Da Silva and Fabio Da Silva are with Fabio’s opening goal.

A dogged display by United denied Arsenal, who couldn’t break past an outstanding United defence, commanded by the dominant Nemanja Vidic.

Wayne Rooney scored United’s second as they beat Arsene Wenger’s side, who after being in four competitions two weeks ago, are now left with just the Premier League title to aim for this season.

In the days earlier tie, Bolton Wanderers beat Birmingham City 3-2 at St Andrews to earn their place in the last four. Chung Yong Lee scored an 89th minute winner to give the Trotters a hard-fought victory.
