Nani hits red hot form with two assists and stunning (disallowed) goal

by Sam Peoples

Nani enjoyed a wonderful cameo appearance against a tiring Ireland side last night that is sure to boost his confidence ahead of the World Cup.

He grabbed two assists and was heavily involved in what would have been an absolutely fantastic team goal if he had not strayed just a yard or two offside for the finish.

For his first assist, he picked the ball out of thin air and sent in a decent left-footed cross for Vieirihina to finish.

He follow that up with a pinpoint through ball for Fabio Coentrao to finish without even breaking his stride.

But his disallowed goal was the highlight of the game, even if it was disallowed, because the build-up play and finish by Nani were superb.

That’s the Nani that was so effective back before his injuries struck and proof that when he turns the screw, Nani is an absolutely top quality player.

If United are going to get rid of wingers this year, Young and Valencia should be sold before Nani goes anywhere.
