In the world of sports and entertainment it's known that every athlete strives to secure fifteen minutes of fame. Well 2008-09 European player of the year Christiano Ronaldo had 10 minutes before Samuel Eto'o demanded for space to confirm fame even before time ellapsed at Stadio Olimpico in Rome. Catalans, they are the European soccer Champs (Kings). They slushed down Red-devils twice, first courtesy of Cameroonian international Samuel Eto'o in the 11th minute before Lionel Messi confirmed the big win in the second half.
Manchester United were on the top of ball possesion creating five clear opportunities but, failing to converting them. Eto'o was fresh and aggressive as ever swift and fast dribbling skills, he was too much for Red-devils defence placing the ball on at the near post past Edwin Van-dar-ser.
Messi having had a number of shots on target tonight he celebrates his ninth goal and EUFA top scorer. His winning goal was the first one in the champions league against an English team.
