  1. Cantona’s goal was better. Why? Ronaldo beat a goalkeeper who was cheating to his right on a dead ball whereas Cantona beat a goalkeeper with a wonderful piece of skill during the run of play.
    As a result of the quality of the goal, I’m going to have to reward Cantona’s celebration with my vote.
