A selection of Manchester United fans were delighted for Edinson Cavani, who scored a stunning long-range goal in the Premier League draw against Fulham.
The Uruguayan has been in fine form since April and last night, he got the chance to play for the club with the supporters watching him for the first time.
Cavani made the moment memorable for the fans with a remarkable 35-yard strike, which beat goalkeeper Alphonse Areola, who was off his line.
The goal remains debatable with a potential offside in the lead-up, but some of the fans on Twitter were quick to praise the 34-year-old.
Here are a few reactions.

Cavani has netted 16 goals in his debut season for the Red Devils, where he has been in-and-out of the line-up due to fitness concerns.
His form has been exceptional since the previous international break with nine goals and four assists across all competitions.
Cavani will have a key role to play in the Europa League final against Villarreal next week as the club aim to end a four-year trophy drought.
The £6.3million-rated striker recently committed to a new one-year contract. He was leaning towards a move to Boca Juniors before he was convinced to stay.
Despite the decision, there are suggestions that the club could bolster their strike force further with a big-money move for Harry Kane.
The Tottenham Hotspur striker has reportedly revealed his desire to leave Tottenham Hotspur. United are among the clubs interested.
