Video: Marcus Rashford rewarded for playing on after offside flag as review grants goal for Man United vs RB Leipzig

In the 73rd minute of Manchester United’s Champions League tie against RB Leipzig, substitute Marcus Rashford was rewarded for playing on until the referee’s whistle.

Fellow substitute Bruno Fernandes produced a brilliant assist as he played Rashford in with a wonderful first-time pass.

Just as the lightning-fast forward latched onto the ball, the linesman raised the offside flag, but Rashford continued on and tucked the ball into the back of the net.

The 22-year-old was rewarded for his tenacity, as the VAR review deemed that he was in fact onside and the goal was awarded.
