Video: Anderson scores his first goal for Manchester United

Posted by - July 30, 2009 - Football videos, Manchester United

Q. Why has it taken Anderson so long to score for United?

A. Because Cristiano Ronaldo wouldn’t let him take any free-kicks.

Anderson scored his first goal for Manchester United with a nice free-kick against Boca Juniors in the Audi Cup. He had previously failed to score in more than 80 matches for the club. The Brazilian’s lack of composure in front of goal has become legendary among United fans, but he proved he was no slouch from set-pieces when he got the opportunity.

Antonio Valencia also found the net for United for the first time in the 2-1 victory (although he didn’t have to wait quite so long). See his goal after the jump.
