Champions League!! Marcus Rashford Scores As Jose Mourinho’s Man United Beat Benfica 1-0

Marcus Rashford’s long-range free-kick caught out teenage goalkeeper Mile Svilar on his Champions League debut as Manchester United edged past Benfica.Belgian Svilar, the competition’s youngest goalkeeper at 18 years and 52 days, suffered a moment to forget when he carried Rashford’s 35-yard free-kick from out wide over his own goalline.Goalscorer Rashford gave United a cause for concern when he limped off with a leg injury in the second half and was replaced by Anthony Martial.Up until the 63-minute goal, the visitors had been largely disappointing, pedestrian in their play and caused few problems for the Portuguese side.Former Benfica midfielder Nemanja Matic forced Svilar into a low save and lashed an effort over the crossbar, as did the disappointing Henrikh Mkhitaryanfrom a promising position.The home side failed to work David de Gea into a savefor the entire game and their best chance fell to Eduardo Salvio in the first half, but the Argentina winger struck wide from inside the box. Veteran centre-back Luisao was given a second yellow card late on.Jose Mourinho’s side top Group A after winning all three games, while Basel beat CSKA Moscow in the other game.Who was your man of match??
