Without doubt there is only one moment that the 1999 United x Umbro shirt will remind you And as mw21_ says;
“Giggs, still Giggs… Ooo what a sensational goal”mw21_
The goal was scored in the 1999 FA cup semi final between Manchester United v Arsenal. And back then, they really didn’t like each other. Arsenal were the side trying to prevent United from landing the Premier League and the FA Cup, but Alex Ferguson saw them off them in both competitions.
After Dennis Bergkamp had missed a penalty to put Arsenal ahead, Ryan Giggs weaved his magic.
The Welshman waltzed through Arsenal’s defence, leaving Martin Keown on his arse, and smashed the ball into the roof of the net. It proved enough for 10-man United, who marched on to Wembley and brushed Newcastle aside.
