Was This Man Utd Counter Attack The Greatest Of All Time?

It's exactly 8 years ago this week that an astonishingly powerful Man Utd tucked Roma up 7-1 in the Champions League.

United went into the second leg of the quarterfinal 2-1 down on aggregate, but first half goals from Carrick and Alan Smith (remember him?) gave the home team a massive boost of confidence.

It was this move though (start the vid at 1:00) straight from their own box, which was the pick of the night. Ronaldo and Rooney teamed up magnificently to give Roma the shock of their lives. If there's a better counter attack in recent memory, we've yet to see it.
