Not only did he break this record but he also went on to score the winning penalty in the game which crowned Manchester United kings of Europe again.

Throughout his time at Old Trafford he has played with dazzling flair, breathtaking skill and a fleet-footed assuredness that has created unforgettable moments of magic. It's not just what he did; it's how he did it.
The DVD goes behind the scene's with United's biggest star. In an access all areas summer Ryan talks through all the key moments of his playing career, shows what his interests are away from football, introduces his friends and family and talks about his plans for the future.

Unusually for a sports DVD it is a high quality piece of work: it could almost stand up to be being broadcast as a TV documentary. The production values are high and although indulgent at times, it is mostly well paced and engrossing.
The most rewarding material - perhaps surprisingly - is of the young Ryan Giggs, or Ryan Wilson as he then was. It is unusual for there to be so much good quality footage of a teenager, and it reveals a blisteringly fast, impossibly well-balanced rake of a winger turning junior defences inside out. You wouldn't have to be a professional football scout to spot that any top club should try and gobble him up. Astonishingly however Manchester City declined to offer him schoolboy forms. So United pounced - and the story of Alex Ferguson turning up at the family home is well told.
There is a strong cast-list of interviewees, but the best interview material relates almost entirely to the early part of his career, with his family and friends appearing to good effect. The later clips are mostly a repetitive sequence of high profile testimonals to what a great guy he is. The interview material with Giggs himself is consistently good however. He is honest and modest - and gives enjoyable insights into famous moments such as his turn in the penalty shoot out in the Champion's League Final of 2008.
The star section is the whole DVD chapter given to THAT goal against Arsenal. Lee Dixon and Alex Ferguson deconstruct the moment; we see it from every conceivable angle; and it only seems to get better and better.Read more ›
Football biographies are generally a bit of a yawn, but Giggs is an engaging, unassuming subject, not afraid to laugh at himself. Hardly an in-depth, warts-and-all portrait, it's nevertheless more entertaining than I expected. The highlight is the goals package - an hour of them - a great way to relive twenty years of swashbuckling United football, through their greatest player of the era. In fact, this is worth getting just for THAT goal against Arsenal. Never was football justice done in such style - and full marks to Lee Dixon for telling his side of it with grace and good humour.
Of many fine peer tributes probably the greatest, and the words which sum up his career, comes from Alessandro Del Piero (in English, too): 'Ryan Giggs is number one'.
Five stars if you're a United fan; if you're not, and you're still reading this, I'm pretty sure you'll enjoy it.
