Take Mach: Federico Macheda celebrates his winning goal for Manchester United this afternoon

ITALIAN teenager Federico Macheda wheels away in delight after scoring a sensational 93rd-minute winner for Manchester United today.

The 17-year-old Roman came off the bench with 30 minutes remaining and United 2-1 down, heading out of the title race and facing a third straight defeat.

Then, after Ronaldo had equalised ten minutes from time, the debutant Cruyff-turned his man in the area, wrapped his foot around the ball and unleashed an unstoppable 18-yard strike into the top right-hand corner.

Such suspense, such drama... an unforgettable end to a quite incredible match; just what is it about United and injury-time?

A point clear with a game in hand, the quintuple still on, but with many a twist and turn still to come.
