Match Rewind: Games with goals galore
'Match Rewind' is back again! And with only one intention in mind: to power every Red through the lockdown with yet more treasure from Manchester United's rich, gold-plated archives.
Substitute David Beckham – in his final European game for the club – scored two beautiful solo efforts to put us ahead on the night and just two tantalising goals away from an implausible turnaround. It didn't materialise, despite frantic late pressure that saw Madrid clinging on, but both sides had contributed to one of the great games in Champions League – and indeed European Cup – history.
“We lost 2-1 away from home and the manager was so happy. He said, 'We'll be all right, we'll win at home'. He was so confident in our abilities.”When you know Rooney, Ronaldo and Giggs et al can play like they did here, that makes complete sense.
