1995-96 Double Winning Cantona goal wallpaper

History was made at Wembley by the Frenchman who seems to do nothing else. Eric Cantona, newly crowned as Footballer Of The Year scored the goal that defeated Liverpool in the FA Cup final for Manchester United to become the first club to complete the coveted Double twice.

History was made at Wembley by the Frenchman who seems to do nothing else. Eric Cantona, newly crowned as Footballer Of  The Year scored the goal that defeated Liverpool in the FA Cup final for Manchester United to become the first club to complete the coveted Double twice.

With just five minutes remaining David James punched a corner clear. The ball landed just outside the area at the feet of Cantona who had scored against Liverpool in his comeback game after a seven month suspension earlier that season.  Cantona hit his shot goalwards, through the crowded penalty area and the ball nestled in the back of the net winning the game for United. True to his form all season, Cantona popped up with yet another magical moment.
