Arsenal 1-2 Manchester United, April 14 1999

Undoubtedly Giggs' most iconic goal came in the FA Cup semi-final replay at Villa Park in 1999 in a barnstorming encounter with Arsenal.

Giggs had started the match on the bench, but was introduced into proceedings by Sir Alex Ferguson shortly after the hour mark; a decision which ultimately won United the game.

The Red Devils were down to 10-men in extra time following the sending off of Roy Keane, but Giggs was able to secure a sensational victory.

Following a misplaced pass from Arsenal's Patrick Vieira, Giggs picked the ball up inside his own half and charged into opposition territory at searing speed.

He first galloped past Vieira, before weaving in and out of bemused pair Lee Dixon and Martin Keown, and then smashed the ball into the roof of David Seaman's net.
