Michael Owen admits surprise over Cristiano Ronaldo's decision in the build-up to his late winner for Manchester United against Villareal in the Wednesday night Champions League match. Ronaldo tapped in a pass from Lingard in the 94th minutes of added time to secure the Red devil’s first Champions League win of the season.
“I thought Cristiano Ronaldo was going to take a step back and bring it down on his chest, he heads it down to Jesse and gets it back and the rest is history, what a finish”, he to BT Sport.
“Villareal probably deserved something on the balance of play but the more and more and the longer the game went the more you fancied Man United, and I was impressed with their energy”, Owen added.
Paco Alcacer had put the visitor in front in the 53rd minutes of the second half after an amazing work from Arnaut Danjuma.
Alex Telles equalized the goal in the 60th minute through a stunning volley, assisted by Bruno Fernandes to take the host back into the game. Thereafter, it became very difficult for Manchester United as usual against Villareal.
Few seconds before the referee blow the final whistle on another frustrating night for Ole’s side, the World's best Deliver.
