Cristiano Ronaldo netted a dramatic winner in the fifth minute of stoppage time as Manchester United edged out Villarreal 2-1 in a Champions League group stage game at Old Trafford on Wednesday.
Playing against the team that beat them in a marathon penalty shootout in last season’s Europa League final, United went behind to a Paco Alcacer strike in the 53rd minute.
However, they levelled the score seven minutes later when left-back Alex Telles scored with an exquisite volley. The game seemed to be heading for a draw when Ronaldo’s late intervention handed United all three points.
Receiving a cross from the left flank, Ronaldo headed down the ball for teammate Jesse Lingard, who laid it off for him. Despite having an acute angle to shoot from, Ronaldo’s effort went in after a touch from the Villarreal goalkeeper.
Manchester United fans completely went crazy with wild celebration after Cristiano Ronaldo’s dramatic last-gasps unbelievable goal.
