12 GIFs of Cantona: No 8 – Would have been a worldy…

On the 8th GIF of Cantona, Beautifully Red gave to me…

…a crossbar denied wonder goal!

Eric Cantona skill attempt come assist v Nottingham Forest 26/12/1996

5 days after Eric scored THAT goal versus Sunderland, he was up to some more lobbing the keeper magic. This time, assisting a 3rd goal in a 4-0 win over Nottingham Forest.
Goals from David Beckham and Nicky Butt put the Reds 2-0 up when on 67 minutes, Eric Cantona did this…

Eric Cantona skill lob man utd GIF

It would have been one the greatest goals ever. As the ball is beautifully played in by David Beckham, Eric Cantona controls the ball on his thigh, juggles and then lobs the ball over the keeper only to see it hit the crossbar. That damn crossbar.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was first to react to nod home and ensure United did score.

Andy Cole finished the scoring as United ran out comfortable winners.


11/9/1993 – Chelsea v Manchester United


This moment always springs to mind when I think of Eric Cantona, and the genius things he did. This brilliant effort, on the turn and half volley after Kharine was off his line bounced and hits the bar, landing perfectly for the keeper to catch it. Damn crossbar again.
United eventually lost 1-0 to a Gavin Peacock goal.
