Manchester United goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar doesn't want to draw English opposition in the Champions League quarterfinals.

United are into the hat after victory over Marseille this week.

When asked if he would prefer an English team or an overseas side his answer was clear: "Foreign team, definitely!"

However the veteran, who plans to retire at the end of the season, is hopeful United can give him a dramatic farewell in the final at Wembley on May 28.

"That's the aim, of course," he said. "It would be a great way to finish."
