Goal of the Day: Seba Veron's volley
Juan Sebastian Veron's wonderful volley in Manchester United's Champions League clash with Bayer Leverkusen is Wednesday's Goal of the Day.
Background: After a disappointing defeat in the last-ever Manchester derby at Maine Road, United needed a reaction when Bayer Leverkusen visited for the final match in the first group phase of the Champions League. With qualification secured but top spot still up for grabs, Sir Alex Ferguson fielded a strong team as we sought revenge for the previous season’s exit at the hands of the Germans.
“Juan seems to be inspired by European football, he seems to revel in it,”said Ferguson post-match.
“It wasn't an easy chance to take. His timing of the shot was terrific.”
