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.
