Video: Nani steals show with stunning 97th minute free-kick winner for Fenerbahce

Remember this guy?

On the day that Manchester united were bested 2-1 by Swansea, two of the former players had a great game in Turkey.

Having signed from Old Trafford this summer, both Robin van Persie and Nani have taken no time finding their feet in the Turkish top flight with Fenerbahce.

Both players were pivotal during their 2-1 league win against Antalyaspor on Sunday. Nani opened the scoring just before the interval, meeting a perfectly-weighted Robin van Persie cross with a powerful header that smashed into the back of the net.

The opposition equalised and it took Fenerbahce until the 97th minute to break the deadlock through Nani.

The Portuguese man showed nerves of steel to step up to rifle home a 25-yard free kick in the 11th hour.

Cometh the hour, cometh the Nani.
