P. Cristiano Ronaldo, United 2 Portsmouth 0, League, OT, 30.01.08
The Portuguese flyer takes the free-kick to a new height with this searing 30-yard arrow that gets up over an eight-man wall with ease and dips just enough to fly in a fraction below the crossbar. If there was a Nobel Set-Piece Prize, this would win it.Q. Paul Scholes, United 1 Barcelona 0, Champions League, OT, 29.04.08
Ronaldo's first chance to open up and run at Barcelona pays off when his run was halted on the edge of the area, and the ball falls to Scholes to strike a humdinger on the bounce right into the top corner. The perfect start to a gripping semi-final second leg.R. Federico Macheda, United 3 Aston Villa 2, League, OT, 05.04.09
The 17 year-old debutant becomes an instant Old Trafford hero when he scores a sensational injury-time winner. Receiving the ball with his back to goal, he wrong-foots his marker before curling a superb shot past Brad Friedel and into the far corner.
S. Ronaldo, Porto 0 United 1, Champions League, Estadio do Dragao, 15.04.09
Cristiano has gunpowder in his boots as he booms a 40-yard cannonball into the net. The Porto keeper doesn’t have a prayer, despite the distance.T. Ronaldo, Arsenal 1 United 3, Champions League, Emirates Stadium, 05.05.09
The Reds' number seven impishly backheels a pass to Park before high-tailing it towards the Gunners' area. He reaches his destination at the same time as Rooney's perfectly-weighted pass, and drills a fine shot high into Almunia's goal.
