First of all, we cannot talk about this list without mentioning R9’s performance against Manchester United at Old Trafford back in 2003. The Brazilian arrived in Manchester as one of the best footballers in the world and seriously turned up against the red devils having scored a hattrick and he received a standing ovation from the Utd faithful when he was substituted with 23 minutes to go.
When people talk about Ronaldo returning to Old Trafford, my mind goes back to 2003 and one of the greatest individual performances of all time.

Moreover, when Gareth Bale was as Tottenham before his move to Real Madrid the year later, he created one of the best performances in the Champions League ever when he personally dragged 10-man Spurs from 4-0 down to 4-3 and still gives right back Maicon nightmare today. [Image: Playing For 90] Again, how can we mention this list without mentioning the top goalscorer in the competition Cristian Ronaldo when he scored his 100th Champions League goal against Bayern Munich back in 2017. Not only did he scored his 100th goal that game, but he also scored the perfect hattrick putting him in the history books forever. In more recent times and again for Tottenham when Lucas Moura was substituted on for Spurs in the 80th minute against Ajax when this were certain to go out in the semi-finals, the Brazilian scored three goals in a nail biting last 10 minutes to send his side through to their first ever Champions League final – unbelievable viewing.
