Australian Four Four Two - - FEATURES -

Modern foot­ball pro­to­col dic­tates you don’t cel­e­brate goals against former em­ploy­ers, es­pe­cially if you’re on loan and your par­ent club are pay­ing 65 per cent of your wages. Not if you are Fer­nando Mori­entes... With Monaco 5-2 down on ag­gre­gate to a side in­clud­ing Raul, Ron­aldo and Zine­dine Zi­dane, and with 45 min­utes left, Mori­entes led an epic come­back. First he set up Lu­dovic Gi­uly (above), be­fore his header – and cel­e­bra­tion – gave the hosts gen­uine hope. When Gi­uly scored again, Real were fin­ished. “I’m go­ing to en­joy this,” Mori­entes said at full-time. We’re sure he did.
