In a Class of His Own!
Our fear, before the game, was that Cristiano Ronaldo, in his current rich vein of form, would hang us out to dry.
As it turned out, Cristiano had a decent game but wasn`t the destroyer we all feared.
However, we will admit that his goal, a towering header, was something that marks him out as being in a class of his own.
Following the 1-1 draw, Sir Alex Ferguson spoke to the media and the Scot had this to say about the Portuguese striker,
"What a header. Unbelievable, you can`t stop that."
"The spring, the way he holds himself in the air, the power in the header."
"I said to Patrice Evra at half-time, 'You didn`t challenge for that`. But when I saw the video later I thought, 'What was I talking about?`
"It was difficult for Cristiano playing against his old tem. There was emotion for him because he had so many great years for us."
"But when he gets the ball you`re praying more than anything."
And we`d also like to mention the dignity Cristiano showed after he`d scored his goal, there was minimal celebration out of respect for his former club, fair play Cristiano.
