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.

Gordon and Obama's cunning plan to wave off riots
GORDON BROWN will today unleash the full force of the British state to ensure protesters do not disrupt this week's G20 summit in Docklands.
Working on the theory that a heavy soaking or dozen will deter all but the most hard-core of anarchists, peaceniks and environmentalists, the Prime Minister will utilise the latest in Chinese nature-defying technology to create one of the most tremendous storms London has seen.
After doing a deal with Beijing to allow pirate DVD sellers to ply their wares with impunity the G20 host has taken delivery of several of the high-tech aircraft the Chinese government used to break up clouds and ensure clear skies during the Olympics last summer.
Only this time, the CHN-900Ks will be set to "create" mode and not "destroy", manufacturing rainclouds out of the ether and setting them primed to detonate at midday today when thousands of demonstrators are expected to gather in the City for what the protesters have dubbed Financial Fools' Day.
Whether or not the technology works or whether the Prime Minister's been swindled like so many dodgy-DVD buyers in pubs and markets across the country remains to be seen.
