Magnus HedmanThe Sky Blues number one braved two encounters with Valencia striker Mendieta to keep a clean sheet in open play.

The Spaniards, favoured by many to reach the final, only managed to score from the penalty spot when Pep Guardiola slotted home in the first half.

It was left to former Sky Blues favourite Roland Nilsson to equalise for the home team, again from the penalty spot.

Roland NilssonNilsson, making his 111th appearance for his country, left Highfield Road to return to Sweden last year.
