Mason Greenwood scores a superb goal as Ralf Rangnick’s fringe stars end the group stage with a draw

MASON GREENWOOD confirmed his place in the Premier League this weekend with a spectacular goal at Old Trafford.

Manager Ralf Rangnick said the game was an opportunity for everyone outside of last Sunday’s first team to show him what they can do.

His predecessor Ole Gunnar Solskjaer knew what Greenwood could do, which is why he considers him the best finisher in the club.

New boss Rangnick also got a close look as the 20-year-old put Manchester United ahead in this Champions League Group F encounter.

Luke Shaw was the one to put the ball in the net but there was still work to be done.

The important thing with Greenwood is that he makes everything look so simple no matter what.

So when the ball flew backwards instead of rolling to his feet, he just made a quick correction and made a scissor volley.

He couldn’t catch the ball with his left foot better no matter what angle his body was at.

Goalkeeper Guillaume Faivre had no chance. When things like this happen, the 20-year-old is least surprised by the end result.

Left foot, right foot, close, in the box, he is a danger in the box and scores all kinds of goals.

This is his fifth game in his first season since a 0-2 home loss to Manchester City on 6 November.

Greenwood is dedicating himself to cementing his place in the main squad once again, in lieu of his international aspirations.

He has told Three Lions coach Gareth Southgate that he does not want to be considered at the moment.

But this player will be a star for the club AND the country in the future.

In Rangnick’s 4-2-2-2, he can play in one of two No 10 roles as well as up front, such as his ability to run from deep, pull like this, cut across, a lot. .

Donny van de Beek was another person hoping to catch Rangnick’s eye.

It is thought that if anyone will benefit from Solskjaer’s departure, it is him.

Idolized by fans, for what reason no one seems to explain, he is clearly the answer to United’s midfield creative problems.

Except he’s not zero, in fact he’s not very good, as he proved again last night by setting up the Young Boys in their 42nd minute equalizer.

Receiving the ball from Nemanja Matic in the back, he tries to make a smarter pass than necessary to Aaron Wan Bissaka.

He wasn’t ready, the pass was reckless and Fabian Rieder was there to hit the far corner from just outside the box.

Both Amad and Anthony Elanga had the opportunity to add to United’s roster in both halves.

The first was caught between two stools and the second was denied by a save.

Both times they were scored by Jesse Lingard. He will most likely go to West Ham next month but what is one player Rangnick has in his squad.

While the Young Boys are still looking for a win to secure third place and a spot in the Europa League, this match makes little sense given United have already topped Group F.

The entire team and bench were changed and even goalkeeper Tom Heaton got his first start for the club in 10 years since leaving.

Charlie, the son of Pundit Robbie Savage, another academy graduate, also had to be out late.

Greenwood is a great example to all who are going through what can be achieved.
