Manchester United Vs. Manchester City, 2011 Community Shield: Nani Earns Last-Gasp Winner For United

Manchester City have lost the Community Shield just seconds after Edin Dzeko spurned a clear chance for Roberto Mancini's side to go ahead, completely missing a free header from David Silva's floating delivery. The ball is cleared, and Nani races onto it, ghosting past Vincent Kompany as though the big Belgian wasn't there, sprinting clear of the rest of the City defence, rounding Joe Hart and putting the ball into the back of the net. Magnificent goal, and that makes it 3-2 United.

It's also the last action of the game, what with it being scored in the 94th minute and all. That's that then - Manchester United retain the Community Shield after an absolutely superb second half that made up for a few horrible minutes at the end of the first. Rafael da Silva lifts his first and presumably last trophy as United captain, which makes a good game even better.
