Gary Neville reacts to ‘special’ Cristiano Ronaldo goal after ‘perfect’ Bruno Fernandes pass

Bruno Fernandes and Cristi’ano Ronaldo majestically link’ed up for the ‘ g’oal wi’th the 36-year-old superbly’ volleying home against Tottenham Hotspur.

 

Gary Ne’ville des’cribed Cristiano Ronaldo’s opening goal aga’inst Tottenham Hotspur as “special” as the 36-year-old magnificently opened the scoring agai’nst Tottenham Hotspur.

Prior to the game, there wa’s a lot of build-up surr’ounding the Portugal international’s im’pact on the team and wh’ether he should be drop’ped for the tri’p to North London’ but as he has done since his return to Old Traff’ord, Ronaldo pulled off a mo’ment of brilliance to give Manchester United the lead.

 

It was a stark contr’ast to the 1st half against Liverpool as the Reds reduced Nuno Espi’rito Santo’s side to just one shot on goal in the whole of the 1st half.

 

Bruno Fernandes was instru’mental in the goal as the midfielder picked up posse’ssion on the edge of the host’s box and lofted a delightfu’l ball i’nto his Portug’uese com’patriot’s path before Ronaldo rifled the’ ball past Hugo Lloris.

 

The for’mer Un’ited right-back praised not only the movem’ent and execution of the 5-time Ballon d’Or winner but complim’ented the 27-year-old’s vision plus the impact the two internat’ional tea’mmates have.

 

You just watch him pu’ll off Ben Davies – his move’ment here is special. That litt’le bit of a shuffle to the left-hand sid’e to get onside. Then the moveme’nt in behind,” he said.

 

The pass is perf’ect and then you’re asking your’self can he finish and it is absolutely wonde”rful from Cristiano Ron”aldo, that is a special goal

 

Only one place he ca’n put it and could he have save’d his [Ole Gunnar Solsk’jaer] life. It’s a brilliant goal. You ta’lk about the impact of Fern’andes and Ronaldo and they’ve conn’ected there.”
