Photos: Nani bursts into tears after scoring wonder-goal for Sporting Lisbon

Nani reminded Manchester United fans what he can do in outstanding fashion at the weekend.

Manchester United winger Nani could not contain his emotion after scoring a wonderful goal for loan club Sporting Lisbon at the weekend.

The Portuguese international scored a 30-yard wonder-strike in his temporary side’s 2-0 win against Gil Vicente, and as he was mobbed by his jubilant teammates he could not help but shed a few tears.

Having been deemed surplus to requirements at United this season, the 28-year-old has been consistently brilliant for the Primeira Liga club.

His latest strike makes it nine goals for the season while he also added another assist to his tally, which now stands at seven for the campaign.

There is a school of thinking that United could do with Nani as they struggle for creativity and verve from deeper in the pitch, and the way he is playing in Portugal, he is sure to have given manager Louis van Gaal pause for thought.

Above and below you can see how Nani celebrated with his teammates, as he continued to prove that on his day he is one of the most effective attackers in the game.
