Manchester United defender Rafael da Silva believes that he scored his best goal for the club against Queens Park Rangers.

Rafael da Silva has admitted that the goal that he scored against Queens Park Rangers earlier today was the best of his Manchester United career to date.

The Brazilian full-back opened the scoring at Loftus Road by sending the ball into the top corner of Julio Cesar's net from 25 yards out to give his side a half-time advantage.

Despite the fact that he had scored four goals for the club prior to today, the 22-year-old has insisted that he cannot recall a better effort than his strike against R's.

"I can't remember scoring a better goal," he told MUTV. "The one at Liverpool was different because it was a curling shot, but I can't remember a better one than this. I think it's my best.

"I just saw the ball coming towards me and hit it as hard as I could. You can feel by the way you hit the ball that it's going in. I just hoped it wouldn't deflect off anyone. It was a good goal."

United went on to win the encounter 2-0.
