In the 74th minute of this evening’s Europa League semi-final between Manchester United and Roma, the Red Devils made it 5-2 against the Italian side, marking a remarkable second-half turnaround.
Luke Shaw caught the Serie A outfit off guard as he opted to pass it out to Bruno Fernandes instead of whipping the ball in.
United’s superstar playmaker showed his world-class quality as he floated in a pinpoint first-time cross into the box, which was steered in by a bullet header from Paul Pogba.
The ball just evaded former Red Devils star Chris Smalling and Pogba made no mistake as he extended the Manchester outfit’s lead.
