Manchester United came back from a goal down to beat Preston North End 3-1 in the FA Cup quarter-finals tonight, but the England striker Wayne Rooney caused controversy in the closing moments of the game.

Video replays showed that Rooney clearly dived to win a penalty which he himself converted. There was no contact with the Preston keeper Thorsten Stuckmann, as Rooney cleverly conned the ref. The foreign legion might have introduced diving to the British game but the English have mastered it.
