RESULT!: On reflection, he will Nev-er make the squad for Moscow.

Byline: DEREK McGOVERN

BOOKIES reckon Gary Neville is the man most likely to suffer Champions League heartache - he's thought to be the only Manchester United player with a mirror in his hotel room.

Paddy Power have priced up the chances of 10 fringe players at Old Trafford making it into their 18-man Moscow squad and poor old Nev gets a massive 7-1 quote. Louis Saha is 1-2 to be selected, assuming he comes through the pre-match warmup unscathed, but the best bet is the 6-4 for Darren Fletcher to make the cut.

Most of us realise Fletcher's useless but Fergie seems to think he's a budding genius.

Relations between Russia and Britain are not particularly cordial right now and I hear United are worried about the Polonium threat, although Fergie has promised to have him man-marked.

It's also a concern for United that en route to Moscow they might be diverted over a region still affected by Chernobyl fall-out, but Wayne Rooney said he will zip his up extra tight.

To make United's 18-man squad (Power): 1-8 Kuszczak, 2-7 O'Shea, 1-2 Saha, 8-15 Nani, 6-4 Fletcher, Silvestre, 9-2 Foster, 6-1 Pique, 7-1 Neville, 10-1 Eagles.
