Is this the goal of the year? I think Cristiano's game winning goal against Porto in the Champions League quarterfinals has to be right up there in terms of its importance to Manchester continuing on in the Champions League, its power, its distance from goal, and just the surprise of the shot. Take a look yourself.
This long range strike is a thing of beauty. The ball hits the side netting from 40 yards out and at 64.2 miles an hour. The goal sends Manchester United into the semifinals and also gets some revenge for Manchester after Porto and Jose Mourinho knocked them out of the tournament some years ago.
