Video: Cantona headers

Heading is part of every centre-forward's game and Cantona was no different...

Eric vs Tottenham, Old Trafford

Denis Irwin crossed to the far post and Eric looped a header over the stranded Erik Thorstvedt and in off an upright for his fourth United goal.

Eric vs Manchester City, Maine Road
Mark Hughes sent Lee Sharpe racing down the left and the winger picked out Eric in plenty of space to despatch a firm header into the net.

Eric vs Coventry City, Highfield Road
There was a slice of luck about the way Peter Atherton's clearance rebounded off the corner flag, but Ryan Giggs ferried the ball back to Irwin and the full-back's superb centre screamed out for Eric's finish.

Eric vs Portsmouth, Old Trafford
Paul Parker lofted a chip into the danger zone that allowed Eric to dive to send a bullet header crashing into the Pompey net.

Eric vs Wimbledon, Old Trafford
Giggs hurtled down the left flank, bouncing off defenders, before delivering a pinpoint cross that was given the nod of approval by a grateful Eric in the middle.

Eric vs Wimbledon, Selhurst Park
After passing to David Beckham, Eric made his way into the danger zone to bravely steer in a typically inviting cross from the England international.
