Manchester United goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar is convinced they have the firepower to upset Champions League final opponents Barcelona.
The Dutchman is backing Wayne Rooney and Javier Hernandez to rock Barca’s defence at Wembley.
He admits: “Messi is unique. He can be electrifying with his pace, his movement, control of the ball.
“He is different to the central strikers you see in the Premier League.
“Barcelona have refined the Total Football the Dutch invented and taken it to a higher level.
“But Rooney and Hernandez have been key men for us over the last six months and they can be a danger.
“I watch the Spanish games on TV and you see that often there isn’t much attacking threat against Barcelona.
“That comes from the way they press high up the pitch – so we have to make sure we can play through that and get at their defenders.
“In Javier and Wayne we have the players who can do that.”
