Munich: David Moyes admits Manchester United made a 'school-boy error' by throwing away a second-half lead at Bayern Munich as his side crashed out of the Champions League's quarter-finals. Champions Bayern romped to a 3-1 victory at home to United in Wednesday's quarter-final, second-leg to win the tie 4-2 on aggregate.
United squandered a 1-0 lead following Patrice Evra's fantastic 57th-minute strike as Bayern equalised just 69 seconds later through Mario Mandzukic, the first of Munich's three goals in the final half an hour.
Thomas Mueller tapped Bayern into the lead before Arjen Robben slotted the hosts third to knock Moyes' United out of the competition and keep the defending champions on course for the May 24 final in Lisbon. "I thought the players did a great job tonight, the only crime was that we let them equalise after just a few seconds," admitted Moyes.
