Eric Cantona: Man Utd v Wimbledon 1994


My favourite goal by Rob Blanchette.

When Eric controlled the ball on the top of his right foot, everything went into slow motion. I was a teenager behind the goal with my mates, packed in tight together to see our team away at Selhurst Park in the FA Cup. I had the perfect view, above the upright which Eric's volley pentetrated. The classical technique of Cantona will stay with me forever, and when the ball hit the back of the net, we went wild. We sang: "Let's all have a disco," and the party went on for the rest of the night, realising we'd just seen one of the best goals of our lives.
