At Manchester United, Luis Nani has had more false dawns than a summer holiday in Iceland. For his country, however, he rarely disappoints. In a 5-1 win over Ireland the highlight was undoubtedly this remarkable team goal.

Unfortunately the irritating officials, sticklers that they are, ruled it out for offside. A backheel this good in a friendly should just be allowed for the sake of humanity.
