Tottenham Hotspur, Premier League, 1992
There didn’t seem to be much danger at first until a Spurs player slipped and Giggs pounced on that opportunity. He knocked the ball past the grounded player and then nutmegged the second defender before using his pace to go around the keeper and slot the ball into the net.
Juventus, Champions League, 2003
Giggs intercepted a sloppy pass from Antonio Conte and ran with the ball through the center. The Juventus defenders couldn’t get near him because of his sheer pace. When he got into the box he finished the runoff by sliding the ball into the bottom corner with his right foot.
Arsenal, FA Cup, 1999
This goal is probably one of the best solo goals ever scored in football. Deep into extra time Giggs collects the ball in his own half and starts running. He dribbles past three Arsenal defenders before unleashing a left-foot belter to put the ball in the back of the net. The goal put United into the final which they eventually won during their treble-winning season.
