United Stunning Against Arsenal in Semi-Final of Champs League

I can`t make up my mind which of Cristiano Ronaldo`s goals on Tuesday night against Arsenal in the Champions League semi-final was the best. The free kick from so far away was spectacular in itself. Many, though, were quick to place some blame on the golakeeper.

On balance though, the second goal of Ronaldo`s has to be the best. The speed at which United moved from the back to the opposite goalmouth was stunning. Ronaldo`s pass to Park, Park`s pass to Rooney, then as Ronaldo was running up the middle, Rooney`s inch-perfect ball to Ronaldo which he put in the Arsenal goal. The 3-1 result for the Red Devils with a penalty against Fletcher which never was says it all.

I doubt EUFA will overturn Fletcher`s ban for the final, but you never know. Either way, after their comprehensive win against their London arch-rivals United go to Italy full of confidence.
