'If It's Football, It's Vital'

We Might See Giggs' Hairy Chest Again!

Has anyone forgotten that goal from Ryan Giggs? Don't think so. Waltzing through the then best back four of the country with ease, he hammered home an unstoppable shot from the edge of the six-yard box to decide a small matter as an FA Cup semi-final during the quest for the Treble.

And the most enduring image of this brilliant goal is surely the celebration: Giggs took off his shirt and wheeled away in delirium, showing off an extremely hairy chest before being mobbed by his teammates.

Tomorrow, United play Arsenal in another important semi-final, this time that of the Champions League. And Giggs warns us all: we might be in for another look at his body...

'Of course I remember it and know I will be remembered for it. It was a great moment at Villa Park for me personally and for the team, a massive turning point in the season that ended in the Treble, a massive night.

I don't know if I like it - because people remember the celebration more than the goal. I used to say I would never do it again, but you never know.

'When you score a goal, especially an important one like that, the feelings rise up and you've no control over yourself, you just haven't.

'That's what football is all about. You never know what's going to happen next. If I score an important winning goal again in the last minute I might just do it.'
