Rafael da Silva: "I can’t remember scoring a better goal. The one at Liverpool was different because it was a curling shot, but I can’t remember a better one than this. I think it’s my best. I just saw the ball coming towards me and hit it as hard as I could. You can feel by the way you hit the ball that it’s going in. I just hoped it wouldn’t deflect off anyone. It was a good goal."

Michael Carrick: "A goal like that from Rafa put us in a great position. I was right next to it. It was an unbelievable strike. It caught me by surprise, to be honest. Probably like everybody else!"

Sir Alex Ferguson: “I said to him he must have closed his eyes! He’s had an absolutely magnificent season: he’s got three goals for us and he’s maturing all the time. He had a fantastic day.”

The Imperial family visiting their Romanian cousins at Costanza, Romania: 1914. I don’t remember seeing this particular pose where Princess Ileana is on Tatiana’s lap and baby Mircea is smiling.
