Lee Dixon reminds Giggs of a goal he once scored

Ryan Giggs claims he wasn't a goal scorer - Lee Dixon reminds him about his FA Cup effort against Arsenal.
 
It seems the Manchester United legend forgot about one very special goal he scored in 1999.
 
 
Lee Dixon was quick to remind Ryan Giggs he is definitely a goal scorer after the Manchester United legend claimed he wasn't.
 
Giggs was speaking on ITV while providing analysis on England's 2-0 win over Lithuania in World Cup Qualifying Group F.
 
The pundit was discussing Jermain Defoe, who received an unlikely call-up for the game, and broke the deadlock for the Three Lions.
 
Speaking about the striker, Giggs commented on his conditioning, and whether his fitness is enabling him to keep going now that he is 34 years old.
 
He added that ultimately the Sunderland striker is a born goal scorer, and that when you have that ability, you will always be able to find the back of the net.
 
As modest as always, Giggs then dismissed himself as a goalscorer for Manchester United, given that he didn't play as a striker under Sir Alex Ferguson.
 
But Dixon was quick to suggest otherwise, reminding him of one goal in particular he scored against Arsenal.
 
 
The former Gunners defender joked: "You weren't bad at semi-final goals though, were you?"
 
As expected, the ITV studio burst out laughing at the remark, which of course referenced the goal Giggs scored in 1999.
 
Playing against Arsenal in an FA-Cup semi-final replay, Giggs made an interception before going on an incredible run.
 
After beating almost half the Gunners team he then hit the back of the net to guide Man United into the cup final in their treble-winning season.
 
So Dixon has a point!
