The Manchester United striker is in the Argentina squad to face Australia in Melbourne tomorrow morning in front of 100,000 fans. Aussie international Carney admits he would like nothing more than to turn the tables on Tevez by scoring the winner in the friendly but he insists the time has come for Blades fans to move on from the agony of relegation.

"Tevez put Sheffield United down on the last day of last season when he scored against (Manchester) United so it's a hard one for (Sheffield) United fans to accept but he's a quality player so I think the fans just have to move on," Carney said.

"I would love to score but we will just have to see how the game goes."

Carney, who rates tomorrow's game as the biggest in his career, has so far struggled establish himself as a first choice in Bryan Robson's Blades' starting 11 but he revealed there is no cause for alarm as he battles his way to full match fitness.

"I think I've settled in very well at Sheffield United and the local people and the players have all made me feel very welcome," he said.

"I'm looking forward to have a good and a long season for the club this year. It's just part of the settling process that I haven't played every game because I'm not 100 per cent match fit yet but I've played two Carling Cup games and did alright so hopefully it's just a matter of time before I get more games."

The 23-year-old is confident the Blades can win promotion to the Premiership at the first time of asking this season.

"It will be hard but we have definitely got the squad and I'm sure that Bryan Robson can lead us to the Premiership," he said.
