Ole Gunnar Solskjaer spoke of the magic of the Champions League after his team produced a stunning comeback against PSG. Trailing 2-0 from the first leg at Old Trafford Solskjaer took his team to Paris missing ten first-team players due to injury or suspension. Yet they took an early lead on the night from Romelu Lukaku, who added a second when PSG had levelled through Juan Bernat.
And academy product Marcus Rashford scored a late, dramatic winner from the penalty spot, sending United through on the away goals. Solskjaer was full of praise for his team’s performance saying “Fantastic. The belief in the boys was what we hoped for. It was a great start – we planned to get the first goal but we didn’t expect it after two minutes. That made it open, we wanted a lot of goals. “There’s always doubt about a penalty, I was in the Champions League with Molde against Basel and my player missed then and we went out. Rashford is 21 and the pressure on the boy – there are no nerves – he’s fearless. Him and Romelu were fantastic tonight.
THE UNTHINKABLE HAS HAPPENED!
