Man Utd fullback Rafael: My best ever goal

Manchester United fullback Rafael da Silva was delighted with his goal in victory at QPR.

Rafael, who made a vital contribution at the other end when he cleared Christopher Samba's first-half header off the line, insists his strike at Loftus Road tops the lot.

"I can't remember scoring a better goal," he told MUTV. "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."
