Oct 22 (Evening Standard) – Cristiano Ronaldo came to the rescue for Manchester United again when he scored the winner as they came from two goals down to complete a stunning comeback against Atalanta.
Ronaldo headed the winner nine minutes from time to give United a 3-2 victory on a memorable Champions League night at Old Trafford on Wednesday.
United were 2-0 down and booed off at half-time but turned things around in the second half to complete one of their great European victories.
Marcus Rashford scored to make it 2-1 in the 53rd minute before Harry Maguire equalised with 15 minutes remaining.
Inevitably, it was Ronaldo who won the game.
In the 82nd, the 36-year-old rose highest to meet a Luke Shaw cross with a brilliant header to make it 3-2 to spark wild celebrations.
After the game, Ronaldo took to social media and wrote on Twitter: “Yes! The Theatre Of Dreams is on fire! We are alive! We are Man United and we never give up! This is Old Trafford!”
