On this day 21 years ago, Paul Scholes scored *that* volley for Manchester United against Bradford.
It’s a truly majestic effort, with Scholes firing the ball home from a David Beckham corner, taking it first time with the sweetest of volleys that rifled into the back of the net.
You can watch it again below, and why wouldn’t you, to be honest?
