Ronaldo wins its at the death for Manchester United in Champions League

Cristiano Ronaldo saved Manchester United in the final seconds of their group stage match against Villarreal in the Champions League.

Ronaldo scored at the 95th minute to beat Villarreal 2-1 at Old Trafford. It’s the striker’s 5th goal in five games since his return as a Red Devil.

The goal marked Ronaldo’s 12th career Champions League goal in the 90th minute or later, double than any other player in the tournament’s history. This, on a day where the Portuguese legend also broke Iker Casillas’s record for most Champions League appearances with 178.

The 36-year-old continues to do what he does best: score goals. The game-winner also comes on the heels of Messi’s first goal for PSG yesterday.

Mr. Champions League is back with more drama. With Ronaldo, the game is never over. Under-fire United boss Solskjaer can now breathe a sigh of relief.
