Late gift for Nani

The Dubious Goals Panel has awarded Nani United’s first goal at the Emirates Stadium in January.

The Portuguese winger demonstrated silky skill on the right flank to beat three defenders before chipping a cross to the back post that found its way into the net courtesy of Arsenal goalkeeper Manuel Almunia.

The strike was provisionally credited as an own goal but the Dubious Goals Panel has since ruled in Nani’s favour. The decision takes Nani's season tally to seven goals.

In other news, United’s third goal in the 5-0 victory against Portsmouth at Old Trafford in February has been confirmed as a Michael Carrick strike. Some sources had credited the goal as a Richard Hughes own goal.
