Cape Town - On this day, December 21, 1996, legendary Man United forward Eric Cantona scored one of his greatest goals against Sunderland.
20-years-ago Cantona ran havoc against the Black Cats as he ran past a number of players to finish off a superb goal.
Sunderland 'keeper at the time, Lionel Perez, recently said that it shouldn't have been a goal.
"This goal shouldn’t exist," said Perez in an interview with The Sun.
“We were losing 3-0 after 48 minutes and Eric had stopped playing.
“He stayed in the middle of the pitch and didn’t run any more because the game was over.
“Then there was one moment, when Ryan Giggs crossed and he had a shot which I saved - it was the only save I think I made in the game.
“Eric then said to me, just in a funny way, ‘Lionel, you should have left it!’."
The match ended 5-0 at Old Trafford.
