Video: Gary Neville’s favourite Man Utd goal that gives him goosebumps to this day

Gary Neville has named Ryan Giggs’ incredible solo effort against Arsenal in the FA Cup semi-final in 1999 as his favourite Manchester United goal.

The United great turned Sky Sports pundit has revealed that the strike still gives him goosebumps to this day.

This week we have been commemorating 21 years since the moment a tired Patrick Vieira gave Giggsy the ball.

The flying Welshman slalomed his way through the entire Gunners defence before unleashing an impossible shot past David Seaman into the roof of the net.

It was a crucial goal with United down to ten men in injury time after Roy Keane was sent off. Peter Schmeichel had denied Denis Bergkamp’s penalty moments earlier in the final minutes of normal time.

The strike helped lead Sir Alex Ferguson’s Reds to a historic and unprecedented Treble as they defeated Newcastle 2-0 in the final at Wembley.

Neville named two other contenders but could not look past Giggs’ effort as his favourite goal.

“Do you know something? The David Beckham one from the halfway line was an unbelievable goal,” Neville told OBI Property. as quoted by Manchester Evening News.

“The Cristiano header at Roma away is one of the best things I’ve ever seen. The leap from the edge of the box and heading it on the penalty spot.

“I think the Giggsy goal, though, in that semi-final is probably the one that to this day still gives me goosebumps. That goal in that match.”

We cannot argue with Gary here. The goal of the season in the match of the season. Giggs produced a moment of magic when United needed it the most.
