Manchester United Fans Are Comparing Bruno Fernandes' Goal To Zinedine Zidane's Champions League Final Strike
Fans have compared Bruno Fernandes' goal against West Brom to Zinedine Zidane's stunning volley in the 2002 Champions League final.
Fernandes scored an exquisite equaliser for Manchester United in their 1-1 draw at the Hawthorns in what was his 22nd Premier League goal.
After a cross from Luke Shaw down the left, the Portugal international swivelled to volley home with his left foot and leave Sam Johnstone with no chance - though a replay showed that his connection wasn't quite as sweet as first thought and there was a bit of shin involved.
Still, that hasn't stopped one supporter paying the ultimate compliment by comparing it to one of the greatest and most memorable goals in history.

Zidane is proud
At Glasgow's Hampden Park, Zidane came up with a glorious goal on the biggest stage as Real Madrid beat Bayer Leverkusen 2-1.
Roberto Carlos picked him out on the edge of the box and Zidane displayed incredible technique to volley the ball in off the crossbar just before half-time.
It was a strike more than worthy of sealing Real's ninth European Cup triumph and is widely viewed as one of the best ever Champions League goals.
There are some similarities, hence the clips being spliced together, but a winner in the Champions League final is a bit different to an equaliser against 19th placed West Brom.
Plus, there's no denying that Zidane's contact was much cleaner and more satisfying.
