Marcus Rashford scored direct from a free kick for the first time in his senior career as Manchester United beat Celta Vigo 1-0 away from home to take control of their two-legged Europa League semifinal on Thursday.
The 19-year-old’s set-piece strike was very similar to an iconic goal scored by former free-kick wizard David Beckham for United at Everton in 2003.

Not since Cristiano Ronaldo left Old Trafford have United had a truly brilliant hitter of dead balls.
Could Rashford be United’s new free-kick specialist?
