Manchester United striker Cristiano Ronaldo, who is the highest scorer in the history of the Champions League, on Tuesday scored a 78th-minute goal against Spanish club Villareal to steer United to the last 16 of the prestigious tournament.

In an Instagram post after the win, Cristiano Ronaldo said Man United players will not stop fighting for the club.

"We are Man United [Machester United] and we will never stop fighting for this club! Let’s go, Devils," Cristiano wrote.

The Portugal captain added that he always feels great to play in Spain, where he played for Real Madrid for nine years.

"Always great to play in Spain, amazing to win in Spain, satisfying to score in Spain, a country where I always felt special," he wrote.

Cristiano also congratulated his teammates for the big win in the Champions League.

"Congrats to the lads for a great victory, that puts us where we belong," he said.

After his goal against Villareal, Cristiano Ronaldo is just one goal shy of his 800th career goal.

Manchester United haven't been up to their best in the Premier League and the Champions League. Due to United's dismal performance, a few days ago, the club sacked head coach, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and appointed former Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick as an interim coach.

Carrick was delighted with Cristiano Ronaldo's performance against Villareal and said he didn't have much to say about him as it is what he does — deliver in big moments.

“There’s not much more I can really say about Cristiano. It’s what he does, in the big games and big moments when you need something he’s there to deliver. He's got a cold and calculated mentality, he’s so calm, and doesn't snatch at the chances," Carrick said.

The Red Devils are scheduled to clash against a strong Chelsea side in the Premier League at the Stamford Bridge on Sunday, November 28.
