Paris - Manchester United crashed out of the Champions League on Tuesday after a 3-2 defeat at Wolfsburg, as the Germans punched their ticket to the last 16 along with Group B rivals PSV Eindhoven.
Louis van Gaal's United made a promising start at the Volkswagen Arena as Anthony Martial handed them a 10th-minute lead but the Red Devils' poor defending at set-pieces cost them dearly with Naldo equalising shortly after.
Julian Draxler set up Vieirinha to round off a sublime team move and put Wolfsburg 2-1 ahead just before the half hour.
But United clawed their way back into the game eight minutes from time when Josuha Guilavogui headed into his own net.
However, Naldo grabbed his second of the night shortly after as he headed home a corner to consign United to a third-place finish and a spot in the last 32 of the Europa League.
"We're disappointed. But if you look back we should have won our last game at home to PSV," lamented midfielder Marouane Fellaini.
Winger Jesse Lingard, who saw a first-half effort ruled out for offside, added: "Over the whole course of the competition, we haven't done well enough to qualify."
There were unsettling scenes after the final whistle in Wolfsburg, though, as fans were forced to stay inside the ground until the all-clear was given after a suspect package was found in the stadium's car park.
