Old Trafford erupted into euphoria the moment the phenomenal No 7 powered home an archetypal effort to seal a much-needed victory on Wednesday.
Cristiano Ronaldo asserts Manchester United “never give up” in an inspiring social media message in the wake of his side’s stunning comeback victory against Atalanta.
Manchester United overcame a 2-0 first-half deficit and ended up 3-2 victorious in last night’s Champions League fixture.
Ronaldo once again proved the hero as he rose above everyone in the box, got on the end of Luke Shaw’s cross, and thumped in a header to grab the match-winner in the final ten minutes.
The result was a much-needed one for the Red Devils as it helped them bounce back after a humiliating 4-2 loss against Leicester City and rise to the top of Champions League Group F.
The win also meant a lot to CR7, who was quite emotional at full-time as he immediately dropped to his knees, with his fists clenched in celebration.
Ronaldo wrote in a Twitter post: “Yes! The Theatre Of Dreams is on fire.
“We are alive! We are Man. United and we never give up! This is Old Trafford!”
