Cristiano Ronaldo contacted Rio Ferdinand after netting a last-gasp winner for Manchester United, stating that he knew he would score against Villarreal.
Paco Alcacer punched home Arnaut Danjuma’s cross in the second half to put Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team behind following a first 45 minutes in which the Spanish side was wasteful in front of goal.
As extra time approached, Alex Telles equalized for the hosts with a spectacular volley from Bruno Fernandes’ free-kick, but the Red Devils were still facing the prospect of starting their Champions League campaign with just one point from two games.
It was the 36-year-12th old’s career Champions League goal in the 90th minute or later, double his closest opponent Lionel Messi’s record of six, and no player in the competition’s history has scored more than his three 90th-minute winning goals.
