Barcelona took the lead with a light head from a corner kick.
As soon as the balance of the match was broken, Rashford stepped out of Man United.
He jumped between two opposing defenders and shook the net with an accurate right-footed shot from an angle where it was difficult to expect a goal.
Actually, it was this scene that surprised me more than the goal.
With a single trick, he overcame the opposing defender and sent a low, accurate pass that resulted in an own goal.
In the 63rd minute of the second half, when Rashford wanted to completely nail the wedge, there was a scene that would make Man United fans angry.
Rashford fell in a decisive opportunity.
In the slow picture, there was obviously contact with the defender, but the referee’s decision doesn’t change.

Later, Rafinha’s cross from Barcelona scored the goal and the match ended in a draw.
However, at the end of the game, Barcelona also complained that the referee did not blow the foul even though the ball hit the hand of a Manchester United defender. 메이저놀이터
