Mancini on FA Cup victory

"We played well, especially at times in the second half, but it was a difficult afternoon for us. Scunthorpe made it hard and deserve some congratulations. We had expected a typical FA Cup tie, which is what we got. I told the player they would need to concentrate for the full game, they did and we got the result but it was not easy.

"Our young players did very well, they have shown me what they can do in training and I had no problem in picking them today. They have the right mentality and this was a big test for them. I’m pleased with them and pleased for them."
>>Roberto Mancini.
