Cristiano Ronaldo enjoys his last-second goal in Manchester United’s 2-1 victory over Villarreal on Wednesday in the Champions League, the day he broke a new record.
Cristiano Ronaldo ignited Old Trafford again on Wednesday with the winning goal for Manchester United in the last minute of Villarreal’s match (2-1) in the Champions League. He did so on the day he played his 178th game in the competition, the historic record he holds ahead of Iker Casillas (177) and Lionel Messi and Xavi (151).
He shared his joy on his Instagram account by posting a photo from his celebration with a Mancunian audience, emblazoned with a liberating cry: “ouiiii”, borrowed from his famous celebration (“Siuuu”). “Without you, this is impossible,” he added to the fans.
“I made history at this club and I want to do it again”
A message he had already sent in front of the media at the end of the meeting. “That’s why I’m back, he told BT Sport. Because I miss this club so much. I made history in this club and I want to do it again. I have to say thank you to all of you, not only for me, but for pushing the team, it will be very important.” Especially this season.”
He concluded his visit by recalling the importance of his goal for the rest of the Red Devils’ journey in the Champions League. “If we had not got three points today it would have been difficult to move to the next round, but now everything is possible, everything is open and we think we will pass.”
After losing to everyone’s surprise in their first game at Young Boys in Bern (2-1), Manchester United still had a poor game against Villarreal. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men received many chances, then a goal from Alcacer (53rd place). Alex Telles (60) tied for the first time before Ronaldo fired an entire stadium.
