Man Utd v Braga: 5 Beautiful United GIF Moments

Manchester United made it 3 wins from 3 in this seasons Champions League but like they have many times already this season, made it hard for themselves.

2-0 down after 20 mins, United once again showcased their tremendous attacking ability to comeback and win the game. The emerging pattern of conceding the first goal will be a worry for Sir Alex, and something that will hopefully be cured with the return to fitness of a few more defensive options but for now, the attacking football the Reds are displaying is getting them over the line.

Here are my top 5 GIF moments from the match

1. Robin van Persie skill

In what turned out to be great play in the lead up to Uniteds first goal, Robin van Persie produced this wonderful piece of skill to get away from the defender, before being fouled by another. The ref played advantage and United scored.

2. Wayne Rooney ‘Megs’

A decent nutmeg is always a great contender to feature on this site and this week its Wayne Rooney who shows a brilliant touch to nutmeg his defender and find some space.

3. Wayne Rooney turn

The 2nd half saw United switched to a 442 formation with Rooney operating from the left. He used his ability to beat his man here with a lovely turn to get away from his marker.

4. Rafael touch

Rafael was praised pre game by Sir Alex Ferguson, and proved he was to do so with another solid performance. His highlight for me was this beautiful little touch whilst contesting a 50/50 with the Braga attacker to get away from him and keep control of the ball.

5. Javier Hernandez play and pass

Hernandez was my Man of the Match, not only for his 2 goals, but for his general all round display. He was full of energy all game and was involved in several of Uniteds best moments.
Here he uses great strength and balance to get around a Braga tackle before playing a delightful outside of the boot pass to Nani.

    Hernandez was so good last night. It really seemed like he’d taken Ferguson’s “He can only play one position” comments on board last night, as he was drifting out wide a lot, as you can see in highlight 5, and the 1-2. It’s good to see. His work rate last night was so good, he’s got such a good attitude, and he’s exactly the type of ego-free player we need when we’re full of great strikers. Everyone’s favourite God fearing Mexican has a big part to play this season!

    Shame you cut the beginning of clip 5, as Evans’ outside of the boot pass was beautiful too!
